Strategic Management Information and Operational Reporting


There is an extensive range of options for reporting on Student Systems data, both strategic, aggregated management information and operational data.

The Business Intelligence Suite (BIS) is the University's web-based reporting tool enabling access to management and operational data for a wide range of systems. BIS is accessed via the 'Reporting + Analytics' channel in MyEd (within the Admin and Teaching tabs) and delivers data via universes, reports and information spaces.

The Information Portal will soon (autumn 2015) be the single source for all student-related reporting information. Some of the links on this page will point to the portal as relevant content is relocated.

September 2015: We are simplifying rules for accessing our universes, reports and other resources, and reorganising our folder structure so that our public reports, infospaces and other resources are no longer organised by universe, but by business area. Further information will be available soon.
