Student feedback on new Course Selector
The Student First Programme is helping prepare UC for the future, and putting students at the heart of our business. It’s focused on transforming the student administration experience so that UC can continue to deliver world-class education.
In 2018 one of our key focus areas has been improving the online enrolment process so that it’s faster, simpler and more certain. Recently we released a new Course Selector tool to help do just that. We asked some students what they thought of it, and you can see their reactions in this video with a comparison to the old UC Student Web experience.
The new Course Selector in myUC will be available for returning students from 27 November 2018, in time for the release of exam results. This means that all students can now complete their enrolment using the new system.
We’re actively seeking more student feedback on the new enrolment experience from students, and we encourage you to pass on any feedback to us at email@example.com.
Recently the Student First Programme team held a morning tea to celebrate the successful launch of the Course Selector and acknowledge the input of the staff who have made it possible. This has included extensive work on the Academic Regulations and input from subject matter experts across the University.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor | Tumu Tuarua, Professor Ian Wright and Assistant Vice-Chancellor | Amokapua Akoranga, Professor Catherine Moran both spoke how the new enrolment experience has benefited UC students and staff, and acknowledged the hard work that UC staff and the Student First Programme team have put in to make this possible.
The improved enrolment experience is reflected in the positive trends and year-on-year growth in Applications to Enrol so far for 2019 enrolment. Students are moving through the process quickly and smoothly, with minimal issues. We’re looking forward to seeing this continue over the next few weeks as we progress through the enrolment period.
