Imagine a SIS system……

- that has the capability to respond to new and rapidly changing requirements                                                                                - with improved reporting and analytics                                                                                                                                                      - that provides a better overall user experience for staff and students and                                                                                        - with modern interfaces.​

​​This is becoming a reality as Stellenbosch University is embarking on a journey with Serosoft’s Academia and their South African partner Eiffel Corp to design, develop and implement a state-of-the-art cloud-based solu​tion that will address each phase of our student life-cycle from recruitment and beyond. The new SIS is called SUNStudent and this forms part of the Stellenbosch University’s System Renewal Project (SRP) to replace the ageing student information system.


What is SUNStude​nt?

​SUNStudent is SU's new student information system, which will use the Academia software provided by SeroSoft Solutions. This state-of-the-art student information system dealing with student administration, of which academic curricula and modules are important components, takes SU on its next step to digital transformation in education. The new system will replace the current, outdated system and promises to be solid and reliable, yet also flexible, modern and student-centric.​


Who is in​​volved?

​The successful implementation of SUNStudent will depend on the cooperation and support of staff and students, who will ultimately benefit from the new generation and student-centric information system. The project will include consultation sessions, regular communication and training of stakeholders across the University.
