Data recorded in SITS has enormous impact on the funding received by the University, its League Table positions, and distribution of funding between Schools.

Jo Hughes will explain how Aston’s data is reported and used externally by Government departments and the press, for example; and why accurate and timely maintenance of the data is so important to the University.
