Department of Student and Academic Administration

Our aim is to enhance the student experience and support the University to achieve its goals through the development and support of a creative and flexible academic and administrative infrastructure.

What does the Department of Student and Academic Administration do?

The Department of Student and Academic Administration (DSAA) is a dedicated professional service which is responsible for providing a wide range of services to our students, staff and partners. We work collectively and collaboratively with all academic departments, Professional Services, external bodies and partner organisations to deliver these services.

Our work underpins the undergraduate and postgraduate student academic experience from application through to graduation; including admissions, registration, fee paying,  timetabling, assessment,  graduation, parchment and transcript production. 

Our role is to guide and support academic and administrative staff in a number of areas including: university policies and regulations, student records, institutional and national quality assurance matters, academic management information, external statutory returns and the development of collaborative partnership arrangements. We also act as a corporate point of contact with key external agencies such as UCAS, QAA, HESES, HESA, and HEFCE
