The UEB-approved schedule for the phased implementation of the University’s new student administration system, Campus Solutions, is now available.
Following the decision to phase, colleagues in IS, Student Services, External Relations, Finance, SPP, LRLR and Project Transform have developed the schedule, below which allows us to implement our new student administration system while offering colleagues across all locations the support they need to transition to this new way of working. It also allows the UK team to focus on delivering an excellent experience to our new and returning students this September.
December 2016 – January 2017
February – April 2017
July – August 2017
The proposed phasing is based on information currently available and assumes the system will be ready in October 2016. It offers the benefits of a single campus implementation first, from which lessons can be learned and stabilisation achieved. Colleagues are now working up detailed plans to enable delivery – these will be shared when ready.
For more information on the changes taking place over the next year, visit the Project Transform blog and Workspace.

Given the importance of this information about phasing, I am a little surprised it hasn’t been disseminated in the form of an email notification to Transform Leaders and Heads of School etc. I have only been alerted to this blog via a colleague who found it.
In addition when you say: ‘Individual timetables available for all UK students’, I presume you mean all students based at the UK campus rather than just UK students?
Will these individual timetables include seminars as well as their main lectures?

Hi Ally, thank you for your comment. This message will be included in the Transform Leaders’ Network newsletter and Campus Update all-staff email today, so will be shared with all staff. And yes, this does refer to students based at the UK campus – we’ve updated the text.

It would be really helpful if this update could be followed up with more detailed information addressing the questions frequently raised by academics. One such question is how is the phased implementation going to work in terms of ensuring adequate support for assessment procedures in Schools and Departments in the shorter and longer term?

Hi Liz, thank you for your comment. Concerns about particular activities, such as support for assessment processes, have been raised through the development of the Faculty/School transition plans. These plans are being developed by Student Services and colleagues in Faculties/Schools to ensure that a consistent service is delivered to staff and students during the phasing process. Actions and mitigations are being put in place to address any concerns raised.
More detailed work is currently being carried out on support mechanisms both for the immediate period and throughout the coming academic year, and this will be shared with colleagues.

How can news of such importance to staff and students be published in this newsletter – this newsletter is about events/campus changes etc….
This is NOT appropriate on the newsletter!!
We were explicitly told that there would be not IT changes for students for maybe up to a year –
A large cohort of students from our School (over 300) have now gone abroad and been misinformed regarding their registration process – this is unbelievable!!

Thanks for your comment. We’ll feed this back to the comms team and consider this in deciding appropriate channels for future messaging.
Students will not register in a different way to previous years. We are looking at ways to more clearly sign post where students will go to carry out administration tasks.

If the interim MyNottingham is “to support online registration” why is it being rolled out in September rather than August? The registration date given by ASD last week was August 8th, we were also told it would be through the portal. Does this mean that for August students will use the portal and in September that will change? Or will students not register until later? Or will the interim be rolled out earlier?

The way that students register will not change this year. The interim platform would signpost the registration system, along with other systems which allow students to carry out administration processes online.
The interim platform is currently in development and we will communicate more detail once it’s confirmed.
