The Student Journey project will establish a College-wide student information system, which will reflect the College's infrastructure, academic model, regulations and student activity. A key aim is to establish the new Banner student information system as the single source of truth for student and curriculum data, which will provide a foundation for all information systems involving student data.

Banner will reflect the College's transition to a new curriculum structure to provide a modular level student study view at the start of each academic year to help inform business and financial planning and to monitor student performance in-year and in real time. This in turn will provide an accurate overview of College teaching and research activity as well as insight and transparency on our student population.
