Following the early release in August of the new online enrolment application (myUC: Easy Enrolment) for teacher education programme applicants, I’m pleased to announce that the Student First Programme team have completed a further release on Wednesday 25 October.
This release extends myUC: Easy Enrolment to all new student applicants across all Colleges and any returning students without an active UC IT account.
The remaining release for 2017 is scheduled for Tuesday 5 December. The December release will let all remaining students use myUC: Easy Enrolment.
Further information and supporting documentation relating to this release is available in the Current Projects section of the Student First Programme intranet site including training documents and feedback we’ve received.
We greatly appreciate all the suggestions and feedback – these continue to be hugely valuable as the Student First project team seek to make a positive impact on the enrolment experience we provide for students and staff.
On another note, I wanted to touch on the other major project delivered by the Student First Programme team in 2017 in the partnership with the Academic Administration Committee and particularly the work of the Academic Deans. This project, which represents the first holistic review in nearly 25 years of our Academic Regulations, is now nearing completion. Following the recent release of the electronic version of the Academic Calendar on 27 September, we’ll be following this up with the distribution of the printed calendar on 15 November.
Introducing simplicity and consistency into our Academic Regulations contributes strongly to shifting the enrolment experience for students to one that is simple, fast and certain. It also provides the foundation for a robust Academic Model that will support UC’s future academic strategies.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who’ve contributed to the Student First Programme and to acknowledge the level of dedication required to get us to this point.
