The Cambridge Student Information System (CamSIS) is the University’s electronic system for handling student information, records and transactions, from initial contact and application all the way through to graduation. It is a single shared system, with one record per student.

All data is entered directly by University and College staff, the students themselves, or downloaded by organisations such as the University and Colleges Administration Services (UCAS).

Features and Benefits

Features & Benefits 

CamSIS provides all users with a current record of student data. Changes to entries are displayed immediately, ensuring the database is always up to date.

With access permission, the service enables University staff to:

  • access all necessary student information in one central place
  • view applications as soon as they are entered or downloaded from UCAS Information
  • carry out many time-consuming processes that were formerly paper-based more swiftly and efficiently
  • create statutory returns (such as the HESA and HEFCA returns) with partial automation.

The service allows students to:

  • manage their application to the University of Cambridge
  • manage their personal details
  • read supervision reports and request official transcripts
  • look up exam details and grades.
