Student Record Systems SATURN is the current Student Administration System for the University of Nottingham, which replaced the student record system on the Hewlett Packard computer on 29 March 1999. It is a bespoke system, based upon a system purchased from the University of Lancaster. The system itself has a number of "modules" which together form the basis of the student administration system, but also integrates to other bespoke systems. The main "modules" are: Student Records, Course Handbook, Maintenance, Undergraduate Admissions, Postgraduate Admissions and Fee Billing.
