The Jubilee International University has recognised that there is a fundamental need to manage the IT systems in a structured and efficient manner. So, it has decided to upgrade the IT systems and wishes to invite appropriate software companies to tender for the design and implementation of the student management system. The system should track the details of the student from the time of application process, enrolment, examinations, and graduation and follow up when there are alumni. The new system should be able to take application submitted by agents across Asia on behalf of the students. The University has 2+2 Programme which allows the student to move to UK for further studies. The direct transfer of student data to the University in UK should also be facilitated in the new system.
