University data

The University's administrative systems store data about the University's estate, finances, courses, research, students, and staff, among other things. Learn how this data can be made available to authorised users for analysis and reporting.

Data confidentiality and governance

The cycle of data governance
The University protects restricted and confidential data, giving access only to those people who need it.

Data stewards and golden copy data

People with mobile devices
A golden copy is the authoritative source of a type of data, such as the student record. A data steward is the person who is responsible for looking after that data.

Data Warehouse

The Data Warehouse is a central repository of data for reports and dashboards that combine data from across the University and/or which show trends over time.

University data model

Schema of the data futures data structure
In order to make sure data products such as reports and dashboards are comparable, it is necessary to agree terms and definitions. The university data model does that, and more.
