New student administration tool for start of 2013/14

The Philsophy department’s student administration system has changed over the summer. We will no longer be using report-tool for seminar allocation and student reports and have now implemented the University’s student administration system ‘Tabula’.

Tabula is an easy to use, on-line administration system designed to support the administration of teaching and learning in academic departments. We have already implement the coursework management element of this system last academic year for the submission of essays and distribution of feedback and believe that the full implementation of this system further will improve your student experience.

The system will support the department in a number of key areas that will ensure we can better support staff and students throughout the course of your studies. Students should note that it will be used for the following with effect from October 2013.

  • Small group teaching allocation and self-sign up for seminar groups (Tabula is very similar to report tool in this respect so the transition should befairly smooth).
  • Sudents will be able to view their personal student profile which will include information such as an up-to-date timetable, the modules students have registered for, who their personal tutor is etc.
  • Personal tutors and supervisors will record brief details of meetings with students on the system that should be approved by both parties (that can only be viewed by student, the personal tutor/supervisor and in the case of UG students the Senior Tutor) to ensure accurate records are kept of such meetings for future reference to support these relationships.
  • Finally the coursework management section of Tabula will be implemented in full within the department for the submission of all coursework/essays and distribution of feedback across all of our programmes of study.

You can access Tabula from the following webpage:
