Open 4 Learning enables universities across the UK to provide a complete and cost-effective funding information service to their students. Birmingham City University is one such university taking advantage of the many platform benefits as Matt Till – Assistant Director of Student Services – reinforces…
“I am centrally involved in the provision of high-quality services to enhance our students’ learning experiences before, during and after university. Our commitment to provide students with constructive financial advice and support has been enhanced with Idox’s Open 4 Learning tool. The system provides a funding database, locked down to our student catchment area, tailored to match our branding and integrated into our existing website. It offers a wide range of information on, and access to, non-mainstream funding opportunities for students – from tuition fees to accommodation, travel and equipment expenses and specific course-based grants – complementing the existing support systems available. It is an excellent tool which has added value to the high-quality services provided by our team of specialist advisers. Crucially, it is an empowering tool which students can use themselves, day or night.
“The portal is well used by students with feedback showing that Open 4 Learning is considered easy to access and user-friendly. It is also demonstrating a return on investment, with feedback from a recent user survey showcasing student funding successes as a direct result of using the portal.
“The team at Idox are proactive in ensuring that Open 4 Learning is equipped with information relevant to Birmingham City University students, and the portal has become an important part of our student offer. It is an excellent tool for undergraduates and postgraduates alike.”
