Business systems

The different software and business systems in operation at the University can be complicated to navigate. Many of them are led by different departments and so it can be hard to know what systems you’re supposed to learn about and how to get trained.

The Quality and Enhancement Office have worked with different departments around the University responsible for these systems and pulled most of the business system training into our booking pages. You should therefore find it easy to identify what you’re looking for and to book onto it.
