‌Investing in our Student Administration Technology & Processes to Manage our Diverse Learning Community

What We're Doing

The University is embarking on a project to significantly improve the processes and technology that are used to manage student data during their time with NUI Galway. We want to keep you up-to-date as we continue to develop and implement changes over the coming years.

Managing student information is essential to the success of any university. As higher education becomes more diversified and complex, we need to ensure that we have the right solution in place that will allow us the flexibility required. The Student Digital Pathways project will look at improving the organisation, processes and the underlying technology we use to manage our students’ journey at NUI Galway – from recruitment to graduation.

Why We're Doing It

Investing in a new student records solution now will bring significant advantages, such as:

  • Understanding the Capabilities (People/Process/Technology) which will be needed over the next 10 years.
    See Student Digital Pathways-Capabilities Explained for more.
  • Improvements to the administration of our students’ journey
  • Significant reduction to technical complexity and risk
  • More flexible modes of learning
