Our focus is on developing the University’s strategic analytics and reporting capability to help uncover insight into key areas such as our student population, research funding and our workforce.

We do this primarily through the management and development of the Cognos Analytics system, through which we provide a range of reporting via interactive dashboard and other formats. In addition to this we also undertake ad hoc research projects using the wide range of Higher Education sector data we have access to.

Cognos Analytics reporting is grouped around the following themes:
  • Student Population
  • Student Application & Enrolment Trends
  • Application Conversion Forecasting
  • Dashboards on TNE & Online activity, Widening Participation
  • Student Performance
  • Module Performance
  • Programme Performance, including Continuation, Progression and Completion
  • Survey Results
  • NSS, PTES, PRES Surveys
  • Internal Module Evaluation
  • Graduate Outcomes employability survey
  • Research
  • Research Funding​
  • Student Completion
  • Resources
  • Workforce Headcount, including Turnover
  • Absence
  • Staff Development
  • Monthly Income & Expenditure reporting
