What is Project Transform?

Project Transform is just one part of Global Strategy 2020, our initiative to strengthen education and research, improve on existing quality and offer a unique international approach for our students.

Aligning processes across the UK, China and Malaysia campuses, the project will mark the beginning of a new journey towards continuous improvement and student excellence, transforming the way that the University delivers certain student services.

What have we achieved so far?

Student Service Centres
The most noticeable difference around campus was the introduction of new Student Service Centres. We now have Service Centres spread across our UK campuses, with three on University Park and one each at QMC, Jubilee, Sutton Bonington, City Hospital and Royal Derby Hospital. These are places where students can get help on a range of administrative processes and queries related to their course or the wider student experience. Visit the Student Services website to find out more.
 
Student Services department
We established a brand new Student Services department to oversee our Student Service Centres and to manage and improve our administrative processes. For the first time we brought the wide ranging expertise of our Faculty administrative staff together into one organisation in order to share knowledge and ways of working.

Optimised Admissions and Enquiries processes
We have introduced new software and processes to support our Admissions and Enquiries teams. This consisted of the implementation of a new PeopleSoft software system called Campus Solutions, which allows our teams to work more efficiently and collaboratively. Find out more about the new Admissions system.
 
Malaysia implementation

The Campus Solutions software offers us an end-to-end student records system, meaning that all student administrative processes can be completed in one place and kept in one record. The system will enable an integrated view of the entire Nottingham student journey.

We’ve also built a portal called MyNottingham, where students can access their record and carry out their part of these administrative processes. MyNottingham and Campus Solutions are integrated so the records seen by a staff member will be automatically updated if a student makes a change – and vice versa.

Malaysia has been the first campus to use Campus Solutions and MyNottingham, with new functionality brought online through the academic cycle. Using our experience there, we’ve been able to identify and work to resolve issues before they affect the other two campuses.

 
China implementation

Campus Solutions is successfully being used by staff and students in Ningbo, China. The system was rolled out in phases over 2017. Find out more about the implementation in China.

 
UK Direct Admissions and Teacher Training

The Admissions team initially started using Campus Solutions to manage UCAS applications. In October 2017, the use of the system was extended to Direct Admissions and UCAS Teacher Training applications.

What does the future hold?

UK Campus Solutions implementation
We are currently preparing for the launch of the Campus Solutions system for student records in the UK. The Project Transform team are busy working on rigorous testing and cutover plans to assist in the delivery and rollout of the new software. Further information on the rollout will be provided soon.
 

 

 

What will happen after Project Transform?

The introduction of the new software and Student Service Centres are part of a journey towards excellence. The Service Centres and the online system will be a marked improvement on the facilities available at the University. However, we will continue to ensure that we build upon the new model and continue to improve services and systems in line with the needs of our students.
