Summary Report for Programme Board 5th June 2014
The work on the interim solution work for Accommodation Bursaries is progressing satisfactorily. Each cohort (entrant undergraduates, entrant postgraduates and returning students) presented distinct requirements and deadlines. Considering timescales and best use of resource, the differences were significant enough to make a short term single solution unfeasible; it was decided to reuse existing functionality as follows:
Returning students – an online eVision style of form (project led by Aaron Hussain)
- Entrant undergraduates – the existing standard scholarship application and selection panel route
- Entrant postgraduates applied via a pdf application form
Entrant and returning applications are now closed.
Number of applications submitted:
Returning students 249
Entrant Postgraduate 354
Entrant Undergraduate 216
Total applications 819
Selection and award processing is on-going for each; interim solution work is now focused on the reporting and payment processes for each of these cohorts.
