Student Information Management Programme update

Invitation to attend a SIMP update for all Faculty of Medicine Staff

The Student Information Management Programme (SIMP) is a multi-year phased programme to implement a College-wide student information system that is underpinned by processes to support academic and student administration.

For students, this will ensure a consistently excellent experience when using College systems, irrespective of stage in the student lifecycle, year or programme of study.

For staff, this will ensure visibility of a modular level student study view in-year and in real-time to make decisions based on high quality and comprehensive information.

The new Banner system will reflect the College’s infrastructure, its programme and modular curriculum structure, its regulations and student activity to improve information sharing for both staff and students. A key aim is to establish the system as the single source of truth for student and curriculum data, providing a foundation for all information systems involving student data.

The transition to fully using Banner as a College-wide system will bring about changes in the way that student and curricula data is held, viewed and managed. Understanding the extent of reliance on local systems to manage data processing is key to successfully embedding the change to achieve a single source of truth.
