Manage your Students Path to Success today!

Manage your Students Path to Student Success today with SEAtS Student Case Management Solutions.

SEAtS Case Management Solutions:

Within any institution, there is a myriad of support services designed to help students overcome challenges and attain their goals. Research shows that students perform best when they spend time with the people on campus who can help them – typically being advisors, counselors, tutors, and lecturers. Unfortunately, engaging students with these services is often easier said than done.

SEAtS Case Management module of our solution facilitates meaningful contact between students and their lecturers, instructors or tutors. The module encourages students to engage more deeply in their academic lives by connecting them to the people and resources best equipped to help them succeed.
SEAtS Case Management gives lecturers a rich picture of a student’s engagement, attendance and success course at any given stage, allowing them to intervene when necessary ensuring that they stay on track with achieving their goals. SEAtS allow everyone (with a need to know) to see where that student is along that path. These case management tools focus limit institutional resources on what needs to be done next to student success.

SEAtS put everything related to each student’s success in one place for advisors. At a glance an advisor can:

– Review case workload
– Send bulk emails, letters or text messages using templates
– Create manual case interventions
– Book appointments with students
– Review student intervention history
– Review activity & attendance history

What it means for your campus

Our system puts everything advisors need to handle student success in the one place reducing advisor administrative workload with workflows and escalations.

Prepare for Brexit with SEAtS Software

Brexit – What to expect?

With 2 years to run before the full impact of Brexit takes shape (if it takes place which is likely), there is no doubt that it will have a big impact of the higher education sector.
Research has shown that EU (non-UK) students will decrease from the current 120,000 post Brexit. Universities will have to work harder to keep their existing UK based students. They may have to recruit more UK-based students to fill the void, many with lower tariffs.

With the widening of participation, the cohort of at risk students increases. These students need active supports to complete their student journey right through to graduation.
Visa restrictions and higher fees for EU (non-UK) students due to their changing status will increase the UKVI compliance workload and associated risks.
On the other hand, the drop-in Sterling benefits international students in the UK with lower fees and living costs.

Good business practice calls for planning for whatever eventuality will occur. SEAtS can help with our tried and tested solutions for Student Retention, UKVI compliance and much more besides.
We do this by giving you early warning alerts for “at risk” students. SEAtS also have a full suite of in-built workflows to track and alert on visa compliance issues. These two “out of the box” processes offer immediate compliance, retention and progression benefits.

Meaningful Data on Student Financial Support with SEAtS

OFFA reports say UK universities need to measure effectiveness of hundreds of millions in student financial support.
The Office for Fair Access says £478m went to direct student financial supports in 2014-15. The spending was on bursaries and fee-waivers. The watchdog wants universities to measure the impact on student success, access and progression. Universities are working on common tools for assessing bursaries’ effect.
Supports are mainly subsidising fees with loans. Low income and disadvantaged students receive bursaries and fee-waivers to widen degree access.

Activity Tracking – Fitbit for Higher Education with SEAtS

Katie Winter
Director of Business Development, US

Have you read this article? “How Wearables have Influenced Data Use In Higher Education” by Patrick Cole. https://elearningindustry.com/8-ways-wearables-data-higher-education
The biggest takeaway: “Giving Students Access To Data Can Cause Changes In Behaviour”. It’s too bad that Higher Education leaders, administrators and instructors fail to execute on known strategies to change students behaviour. If you’ve read anything about Higher Education in the United States lately you’ll know that student retention and graduation are hot topics. At most public universities only 19% of college students graduate within 4 years. Whoa! That’s a lot of extra tuition parents are paying and more money taken out in student loans.

The number of students from outside the EU coming to study at UK universities has fallen for the first time, with a particularly dramatic drop in the number of students coming to the UK from India and Pakistan, according to official figures. 20 Jan 2014.
