  • Applicants and their interests can be grouped into prospective categories, each student can be contacted with information relevant to them
  • Information can be distributed electronically via an extensive mail merge function
  • With the help of our process, tasks can be created for resubmission and completed tasks are clearly noted, (e.g. who has received which information)

Application and admission

CampusNet® supports the complete application process at universities: from course requirements to authorisation and enrolment. Increased numbers of applicants can be processed and places can be offered quickly.

Different process to allocate student places

Normally student places are allocated via a fully automatic ranking and remaining places filled successively. In addition (or as an alternative) a qualification exam can also be configured into the system.

Selected functions in detail

A complex and highly configurable process automatically evaluates which applications are successful. Each application will be assigned one or more rankings according to information provided (e.g. grades, waiting period, special cases). The total university places to be awarded will be allocated to the individual ranking lists according to a contingent scheme. The application data is then evaluated based on an evaluation scheme using a points system. This calculates a score, which results in the equivalent position on the ranking hierarchy. The entire evaluation process is automatic. However, there are various control mechanisms available for each step of the process, which allow manual control. In this way, available places can be distributed from one ranking to the other or certain ones can be intentionally overbooked.

  • • Following the main selection process, any number of successive reallocation procedures can be performed, as places become free due to them not being taken by previous canditates
  • Easily configurable correction scores can be stored on an application when degree grades are available. The use of these corrections can be controlled so long as the upper limit of places isn’t exceeded.
  • A comprehensive analysis provides guidance on optimising the selection

An applicant can be reviewed and evaluated by an expert in an individual entrance test. The result of that test can be the basis of an offer or be entered into the automatic rankings. All parts of the entrance test can be run in parallel to the processing of the automatic system.

  • The assignment of test reviewers is simplified by managing appraiser resources.
  • The categorization of the appraiser´s different roles can be collated.
  • The evaluation can be performed automatically online, supported by a notification and reminder system.
  • Various monitoring functions ensure a smooth running evaluation process.

Fully online application

Applicants can submit their application form and any additional requests online. The supplied data can be saved and processed at a later date. The completed application form and all special requests are digitally transmitted to the university and can be printed as PDFs.

Selected functions in detail

  • Applicants can be prompted to answer questions that will gradually guide them towards finding the best courses for them.
  • Applicants can target a specific range of courses using different search criteria
  • The candidate can view their application status via a user account.
  • All special student requests can be viewed directly on their application form
  • Students are able to switch their major and minor subjects online.
  • Once a subject has been chosen, the course regulations are automatically displayed.
  • Barcodes on the printed documents allow an electronic register (in case forms are posted)

Options to configure the selection process

Configuring the selection process is simplified by using numerous individual components. Different study courses can be viewed while at the same time the selection processes can be adapted accordingly to the courses on offer.

Selected functions in detail

  • A priority process for duplicated or parallel applications is available as an option. The priority of an application will be noted in a ranking so that only one place will be allocated per student.
  • A partial approval can be set up for multiple courses. In this way, candidates who have not been authorized for all parts of their desired subjects gain access.
  • The different states of an application can be viewed at any time.
  • Configurable checklists aid the processing of applications by prompting the student to ensure that all required boxes are ticked, resulting in clean applications.
  • Using lock functions, applications can be paused or blocked at any time, for instance, if documents are missing.
  • Assigned student applications are compared to the available number of places so that an over-booking alert can be triggered in advance.
  • Each selection process can determine how many unique applications are possible throughout the process
  • A fee can be attached to each application which is payable by the candidates before they enrol.

Easily configurable forms

Each university can configure their application forms according to their requirements. This enables the structure and contents of the application form to be tailored to each course.

Selected functions in detail

Help functions for form completion

  • Special sections are available for application forms. Predefined queries, e.g. master data from a candidate or their chosen course, can be included in the application form.
  • Automatic functions can be activated depending on data input: individual sections of the form can be highlighted or hidden, emails sent directly to the students, or applications can be blocked. On creation of an applicants file, all necessary data from the application form will automatically be saved.
  • All data from the application form can be viewed and considered for a ranking at a later stage
  • Version management allows changes to the forms on the fly

Linking DoSV (DoSP)

The Dialog orientated Service Procedure (DoSP) was developed by the Foundation for Higher Education Enrolment to aid the assignment of student applicants to the number of places at German universities. All required interfaces and numerous support functions are available in CampusNet.

Selected functions in detail

  • Applications can be registered via the web portal of the university
  • All applicant data in CampusNet® is continuously synced with the admissions office of the Foundation for Higher Education.
  • Multiple applications can be easily recorded, as can restricted admissions as well as those courses do not have an admission limit.
  • Following the DoSP assignment, remaining places can be assigned via the university internal clearing procedures.

Digitally created notifications

When applications have been assessed, PDF admission or rejection notifications can be created using the mail merge function. The notification letters can then be posted and/or sent online.

  • For each applicant an appropriate status notification can be created (e.g. admission, waiting list, rejection)
  • An acceptance period can either be transferred from the application form or noted on the admission acceptance letter.

Course management

The course management program provides the framework for the course and course conditions offered by the university. It focuses on the management of exam regulations and modules where global, and exam specific, regulations are in force.

Administration of multiple courses

The course details are determined by the exam regulations. As well as key study guidelines, examination regulations contain topics and part-exam systems - the so-called trial blocks (modules, termination modules or individual courses). The hierarchical structure of examination regulations, and the repeatability of curriculum modules, reduces the effort in planning courses.

Selected functions in detail

  • Different exam regulations can be managed per subject / study course.
  • Exam regulations are organised hierarchically so basic settings can easily be re-used.
  • Formal examination regulations (and data reported to the State Statistical Office) can be controlled
  • Multiple course regulations can be defined, i.e. if students must meet certain conditions in their choice of subjects.
  • Parallel management of courses with different lengths, e.g. Law in trimesters and economics in semesters is possible.
  • Basic information about the examination regulations can be easily used for the Diploma certificate
  • An export function is available for courses and their allocated examination regulations

Flexibility while in operation

A number of examination regulations can be assigned to a course, allowing changes for the next semester at any time. However, pre-existing exam regulations do not lose their validity.

Selected functions in detail

  • Complete exam regulations or individual parts can easily be copied over
  • The copy function for standard examinations can be used whilst student continue to study under the regulations they enrolled under
  • Existing performance data can be fully transferred into new examination regulation models

Study modules are created independently of examination regulations. Individual courses, modules or general qualifications can be applied to any number of examination regulations. The same applies to partial exam regulations. This considerably reduces the workload.

Selected functions in detail

  • Settings like participation requirements can be adjusted at the modules or context specific in the respective examination regulation.
  • A clear structure is given by allocating modules to certain areas of examination regulations.
  • Separately from study courses, other teaching tools and E-learning can be combined via modules.
  • The descriptive text for each module can be managed and displayed via an interface and can also be assembled to module manuals.

Differentiated configuration options

The core data is linked to the examination regulations (e.g. fee structure, evaluation system, admission limit, standard study period). All other settings concerning modules can be adjusted at module or sector level and even at course level. The settings of the previous level are passed onto the next lower level, this way only discrepancies need to be addressed.

Selected functions in detail

  • Different examination systems can be used within the examination regulations, results being able to be converted between the different systems.
  • For each regulated exam element, individual rules can be applied in regards to repetition, weighting of individual results, how compulsory each unit is, etc.
  • Main focus areas and areas of specialization can be built up by selecting fields of your choice.
  • For course ranges, minimum and maximum numbers can be defined that specify how many study modules must be completed or the number of credits that must be accrued.
  • For the study blocks of a particular subject, you can specify that students must complete the compulsory parts and other students can complete them in work experience.
  • Based on the examination regulations, different curriculums can automatically be created that are graphically displayed, this can show when, and in what sequence, the individual study elements have to be completed.

Course management

The course management in CampusNet® includes the creation of modules and educational events (lectures) for a particular semester. It also includes the assignment of lecturers, time and location planning, processing and monitoring registration and the selection of participants.

Efficient course management

To simplify the process, all required modules and lectures are created at an abstract level. Important information such as grades, credits, participation requirements etc. are all listed and transferred into the specific course curriculum at a later stage. Additions and amendments can be carried out any time.

If a lecture is oversubscribed, a decision based on configurable criteria is made as to which applicants are accepted and which are rejected.

Selected functions in detail

  • When selecting participants, individual criteria such as hardship cases, examination regulations, or their amount of semesters are considered.
  • When selecting participants using enrolment groups, students will automatically receive a place once registered in the group
  • Several events and modules can be combined into a group when enrolling. Students can then enter all lectures (or modules) of their enrolment group to their preferences, which in turn are taken into account in the selection of participants.
  • When places become available, they are automatically filled with people moving up from the waiting list.
  • Lectures can be made available to students who just ‘listen in’ independent of the selection of participants

Campus Reporting Services

You want answers to questions today which might only come up in the future?

How many students have subscribed to which course? What is the drop-out rate in specific student years? With the Campus Reporting Services (CRS), that Datenlotsen offer, universities have a comprehensive reporting solution, tailored to their needs. CRS provides all the functionality of a modern management information system (MIS) - with two different on demand variants: standard and individual ‘ad hoc’ reports.

More info >

Areas of operation

The CRS not only draws on data from CampusNet® but are also able to retrieve data from other systems such as financial accounting, or HR software, and assimilate them.This way the university gains a comprehensive database for future control-specific decisions. A comprehensive database is provided for future developments (for example, the numbers of new applicants per term) and "what if" scenarios.

Standard reports can be defined and are then automatically supplied within a certain time frame (to view via web portal or received by email). Reports can be sent on a regular basis to the most recent applicants. Many standard reports are already preconfigured and included in the basic package and can therefore be used immediately. and included

On demand Ad hoc reports supply data on individual requests. Adhering to the permission settings of the CRS, users can only access data they are authorised to. For example: In response to a press inquiry about dropout rates in a particular subject, the system carries out a data scan over the last semesters.
