Working and Studying Away project has started

 

A new project is underway to create a standard process for the University of Edinburgh students who may be working, studying, or carrying out research elsewhere and develop an automated solution to underpin the new process. 

All information and correspondence relating to students working or studying away from the university will be stored on Euclid to enable statutory management reporting.

The Key objectives of the project are:

  • Redesign university wide business processes for recording and supporting students studying or working away from the institution. It is intended that the new processes start from the agreement being made with other partners through to the student returning to the university and having any outcomes recorded against their student record.
  • Develop the appropriate solution to support the new business process, including student online application for students to apply for study and work away opportunities.
  • Ensure all information and correspondence relating to students working or studying away from the university are stored on the student record to enable statutory management reporting.
  • Provide a repository for all documents associated with the process, including documents relating to contractual agreements with other partners in relation to study arrangements and placements.

The key benefits of the project will be Accurate Data Recording, Improved Student Support and experience, Accurate Information on Student Location, efficient placement management.

The aim is for the new solution to be ready in time for student applications in Semester 1 of Academic year 2018/19.
