British University Vietnam to implement Tribal SITS : Vision to redefine student management system

Tribal Group , a leading provider of education technology Software-as-a- Service ( SaaS ) solutions globally , has announced the signing of a five-year contract worth near AU $ 3m with British University Vietnam for the deployment of their outof-the-box foundation build of Tribal SITS : Vision to completely redefine the institution ’ s student management system .

British University Vietnam ( BUV ) is the first and only international university in Vietnam granted to deliver degrees by two prestigious universities in the United Kingdom : University of London and Staffordshire University . BUV ’ s mission is to ‘ create a new generation of discoverers , explorers and creative thinkers who are educated , trained and prepared to thrive in future ( 4IR ) fields of work and life ’.
Christopher Jeffrey , Chief Academic Officer , British University Vietnam , said : “ We are excited to be able to bring a superior experience for our students on their learning journey . Tribal Group ’ s SITS : Vision platform ensures that top-of-the-line student management system enables access to programs , allowing us to deliver the best service to our students and alumni .”
The university currently helps educate nearly 3,000 students on a state-of-theart campus in Ecopark township , Vietnam , backed by an innovative and diverse group of approximately 200 employees , out of which 57 are faculty members .
Recently , BUV became the first university in Vietnam to be certified by QS ( Quacquarelli Symonds ) with a fivestar rating for overall score and for the following criteria : teaching , employability , academic development , facilities , social responsibilities and inclusiveness .
Tribal SITS : Vision is replacing a number of BUV ’ s in-house systems to provide a centralized student management system . BUV was seeking a modern platform that would be scalable to support the rapid growth predicted within the institution . Over the next three years , they planned to triple their student numbers and aim to do this without having to dramatically increase their internal resources . They wanted a solution that would provide efficiency and all the business process reengineering that a modern system would bring to support their vision for growth .
Both University of London and Staffordshire University as well as the Foreign Commonwealth Office recommended Tribal in BUV ’ s search . After a rigorous vetting process , the team awarded Tribal and SITS : Vision with the win . Tribal SITS : Vision will be implemented with a phased delivery and a single go-live is set for August 2023 .
SITS : Vision is Tribal ’ s market-leading student management system specifically designed for higher education providers to manage and improve every aspect of the student journey – from recruitment and admissions to student support , retention and outcomes .
Tribal has over 150 customers globally and 11 customers across the Asia Pacific region currently using Tribal ’ s SITS : Vision , with University of Sydney , Nanyang Technological University Singapore and University of Waikato as some of the clients served .
Brandon Gore , Operations Director APAC , Tribal Group , added : “ We are delighted to have been selected by British University Vietnam to provide them with a solution to help them streamline their process and improve their staff and student ’ s experience . The team are looking forward to this partnership and for a successful implementation .” p
