Fixing Portico: The Academic Model Project
Over the past ten years, student numbers have doubled from approximately 20,000 to 40,000. In this time there have also been changes in Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) requirements, and changes to UCL’s regulations and procedures as well.
The Academic Model defines how curriculum data is structured and linked in Portico. With all of the changes that have taken place at UCL, making improvements to the Academic Model and to the key administrative processes to reflect these changes will ensure that Portico has the best framework for the volume of data it needs to manage, and continues to deliver the best user experience possible.
