With tuition fees set to rise to a maximum of £9,000 per year, students deserve appropriate and personalised support to be give them best chance of success and return on their huge investment, says Perspective, a leading provider of learning management products.
The fees hike has been met with criticism and even protests from students and teachers alike since the announcement in 2011. Despite the remonstrations and lower than average increase in student applications, the new costs are here to stay and will be enforced before the end of the year. As a result, those students still opting to attend university should be assured that their commitment will be replicated by the universities with close and accurate monitoring and personalised support to maximise the chance of them leaving with a high degree pass.
The simple introduction of a student management system, such as Perspective’s Sunesis product, will provide a simple yet highly effective means of achieving the appropriate levels of support required. With the ability to view progress in real-time, as well as red-flag situations, such as unauthorised absence or a sudden drop in grades, being raised automatically, teachers and lecturers have greater control over the destiny of their students and the ability to rectify any unwanted situations before they become a serious problem that could lead to course failure.
Paul Davis, managing director of Perspective, commented: “Attending university has always been a large financial commitment but non-more-so than today – especially given the current economic climate. That’s why I think the universities need to implement accurate progress monitoring systems, and even give each student an individual learning plan, to assure them that they are getting a return on their investment by being given to best chance to succeed on their chosen course.
“Such products are simple to use and in the large majority circumstances save time on existing monitoring procedures. Importantly, at a time when many potential students are weighing up less expensive alternative further education options, it could be the difference that attracts them to an institution.”
