University of Roehampton, founded in 1841 offers an extensive range of courses in business, law, psychology, communication and performing art. The University draws together four renowned colleges, each with its own world-class reputation.

The University of Roehampton London deployed SEAtS Software to underpin the University’s student retention, engagement, compliance, and capital investment objectives.

The Challenge

Higher Education faces more environmental and government policy challenges than ever. Brexit, increased competition, widening participation, TEF, NSS, UKVI to mention just a few. The single view of success is now mission critical in this environment. It is no longer enough to report on historic data. Universities need cloud and mobile apps that are up and running fast. Real time engagement and presence reports, analytics and early warning alerts become part of their processes. They can use real-time data to shape student progression and outcomes. This will deliver them a significant competitive advantage.

The Solution

The SEAtS Student Retention solution is an early warning system for engagement, attendance, compliance, and attainment issues.

Reports, alerts and data analytics are delivered on the cloud. Students, academic and administrative staff will benefit from self-service e-forms and processes designed to engage and retain students, assure compliance and drive achievement levels through proactive early interventions. Student presence will be captured using in-room touch terminals that work with existing student ID cards.

SEAtS will also deliver on Tier 4 visa and immigration compliance obligations, producing accurate timely stakeholder reporting for UKVI and other stakeholders. Operationally it will provide a consistent approach to student engagement and retention including, attendance data capture, absence alerts, online registers and evidence of presence with verifiable data streams.

The SEAtS platform will connect with existing campus systems at The University of Roehampton including student records, timetabling and virtual learning environments.

The Impact

Roehampton’s academic, administration, and support staff now have a single secure location to go to access student engagement data. SEAtS connected to their existing campus systems and began drawing siloed student data into one place and transforming into meaningful insights.

SEAtS has been a very effective tool in the work of Roehampton’s student support services to improve student retention. Student engagement analytics identifies potential issues early and triggers staged workflows in real-time, meaning no time is wasted taking the first step to reengage at-risk students.

SEAtS attendance data is used to inform retention initiatives as well as fulfil Tier IV reporting requirements. The attendance monitoring solution leveraged the University’s existing investment in student ID cards, which made the impact on the students minimal, thus ensuring maximum adoption.
