Key Information Sets update

Posted by Matthew Owen | 0 comments

Following the successful submission of our data by Corporate and Academic Services, Key Information Sets (KIS) for eligible undergraduate courses went live on the Unistats website on Thursday 27 September.

The KIS for each course contains metrics and data for fees, costs of accommodation, employment and salary outcomes, teaching and learning and student satisfaction. By using the Unistats website students can now easily compare data for a range of courses across different universities in one place.

The data isn’t restricted to the Unistats website however and the University is also required to display a KIS for each eligible undergraduate course on its own web pages using a ‘widget’ which pulls in information from the Unistats website.

Having adapted our course content pages to accommodate the KIS widget we went live with the data on our own pages on Monday 22 October. The scrolling widget used displays a small sample of the information with the option to click through to see the full information on the Unistats site.

Not all of our undergraduate courses meet the criteria to display a Key Information Set and as such many of them will not display a widget on our website or have an entry on the Unistats website.

We will continue to update our Key Information Sets with data submissions to the Unistats website as and when required. In the mean time, please feel free to contact me if you have any KIS related queries.
