The Student Lookup tool allows Personal Academic Tutors and Course Leaders to look up the student record details for students they are responsible for.
A Student Lookup tab appears on studentcentral for all staff, in all schools, providing instructions, support and a single-sign on link to eVision.
The student look up tool has been designed to enable specific staff to view a range of data on students within their cohort. Staff are given access to this data so that they can support their students with academic studies, improve the student experience, and offer a proactive approach to improving / monitoring student engagement. SSGTs and staff involved with student support also have access to this data for the purposes of supporting students with retention / early intervention / wellbeing.
It may be that you notice a pattern of low engagement or academic performance and use it make contact with the student; or you may access this information as a tool to facilitate ongoing conversations with the student – perhaps as part of Personal Academic Tutoring sessions.
Access to this data is on the basis that it will only be used for the above purposes only.
In accordance with University Policy, emails to students should always be via university email accounts, unless attempts to contact them on University email accounts has been unsuccessful and there is a sufficient concern.
