Case Study

Imperial College London

Student pre-admission System

The Challenge

Imperial College London runs a series of summer schools and cohort programmes to promote Imperial to the most able students worldwide and to support students from under-represented backgrounds in reaching their full potential.

As part of its Operational Excellence agenda, Imperial set out to streamline the multiple systems and processes used to manage the applications with the aim of:

✔ Improving the application experience of students applying to its summer schools and cohort programmes

✔ Improving the assessment criteria metrics for programmes aimed at widening participation

✔ Managing a system of communications throughout the application process to students, guardians and teachers

✔ Meeting GDPR compliance requirements

✔ Providing one single solution to the multiple processes and systems used

The Solution

Imperial recognised the capability of the Outsystems Low Code Platform to deliver the solution and teamed up with ISB Smart Solutions to deliver a new system.

ISB Smart Solutions and Imperial worked together successfully over a ten week period, adopting an agile project methodology. The new system went live on time and within budget on 15 January 2018.

“Imperial is delighted that the new application system built on the Outsystems platform was delivered successfully, meeting all of the aims of the project.

The new functionality has provided a portal where students can track the progress of their application, a series of automated communications throughout the application process, a criteria calculator which Programme Managers can use to assess candidate suitability and a reporting dashboard for our staff.”
