The Oracle Student System (OSS) has now been fully replaced with eVision, which marks the completion of the Admissions project. This is a significant milestone although improvements to Oxford’s Student Systems continue.

Over 2,800 undergraduate applications were processed in eVision during A-Level results week. In order to support this process, email notifications and a new confirmation checking report were added to eVision. Changes to Graduate Admissions include the integration of fee payment into the graduate student application form, and the new Graduate Applicant Self Service, allowing applicants to track the status of their references, manage referee details, upload supporting documents and edit their contact details.

The remit of the Student Systems Programme (SSP) has widened to include all projects commissioned by the Education IT Board. This includes work for Student Systems as well as new projects sponsored by Academic IT Services, such as the WebLearn upgrade and Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) review. To reflect the change, SSP will be renamed the Education IT Programme. In Michaelmas term 2016 the website and email address will be updated to reflect this, in the meantime any queries should be sent to ssp@admin.ox.ac.uk.
