Launch of KentVision and read-only access to Student Data System (SDS)

Kent Vision screen shot showing different blocks
The new KentVision student portal will now launch later this week. 
This is a bit later than the planned launch date of 19 April but the team have been working all weekend to make sure the launch happens this week while allowing time for thorough testing. You can read more on our staff website.
KentVision reports the information we have about you and simplifies a lot of processes behind the scenes, providing you with an enhanced student experience and record of your time at Kent.

What differences will I see with KentVision?

The main change for you as a student is that the KentVision student portal will look a little different. Watch this quick video guide below to see the new look and tips on how to use the new system.

With any new system comes some changes; module codes are different in the new system but both the old and new codes are referenced on your examination timetable to ease the transition. Your timetable view will also display a different set of week numbers the new system uses but will still be easy and intuitive to view.

How will the Student Data System (SDS) be affected?

The Student Data System (SDS) closed on Friday 9 April at 17.00. You have read-only access to SDS while your data is transferred to the new system. This means the information you can see will be “frozen” and you will not be able to make edits during this time.

Please note – any new course marks that are due to be released while SDS and KentVision aren’t available can be viewed in Moodle.

Please be patient with any student data queries during this time as staff will not have access to SDS from 10 April. Staff will be able to answer these queries later this week once KentVision launches. We do not expect any interruptions in this period to other core IT services for example Moodle and TargetConnect.
