About the Student Digital Pathways Programme

The Student Digital Pathways programme was established in December 2018 to fulfil the recommendations of the University to implement a new student record management solution as the current system can no longer meet University needs.

 The programme has a core aim to review and improve the organisation, processes, underlying technology and data used to manage the students’ journey at NUI Galway – from recruitment to graduation.

 Higher education has evolved to become more diversified and complex, therefore, it is important to ensure the University has the right solution for managing our students’ journey to maximise flexibility and also meet the digital needs of our students and staff.

 The Student Digital Pathways team have taken a capabilities approach throughout the project to ensure focus on the best solution around our peopleprocess and technology for University sustainability over the next ten years and beyond. 


The Student Digital Pathways programme will transform University processes and IT with the implementation of a new student records management solution (SRMS) at NUI Galway.  

Staff and students will have access to a single platform, the SRMS, for all student services and data.  The solution will be available across multiple platforms, mobile and desktop, for accessibility. 

Stakeholder Engagement 

The programme involves significant investment for the University and relies upon our stakeholder’s engagement and commitment to effectively manage this change and deliver effective solutions to meet our stakeholders needs.  

From project initiation, the Student Digital Pathways has engaged with our students and staff, academic and professional services colleagues.  The team encourage all stakeholders to get involved and provide input and feedback to maximise project impact.  Information about the programme stakeholder representatives can be found here.
