About the Customer

Buckinghamshire New University, styled bucks new university, is a public university with campuses in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, and Uxbridge, Middlesex. 

Scope and Challenges

The University needed management that will improve the student experience by offering a personalized digital campus experience. They wanted to provide a consumer-grade digital experience across the entire academic lifecycle including vital interactions such as tuition fees, course management, attendance, and housing. 

Nicholas Roussel-Milner, Director of Information Systems & Technology at Buckinghamshire New University, said: “The University recognizes the importance of IT in achieving its goals and is making a significant investment in technology over the next five years, which will enhance the student experience, drive business transformation and improve the quality of IT service delivery.

Outcome and Implications

On the 12th of September 2016, they announced that they will add Unit4 Student Management on the Microsoft Azure Cloud to support its growth strategy.

Unit4 Student Management will become the most widely used technology at the University with workflow and self-service for over 1000 staff and 8,800 students.

Buckinghamshire New University is already implementing Unit4 Business World finance, HR & Payroll. The integration between these and student management will ensure transparent relational information across functions for better insight so decisions can be made efficiently.


“We are very pleased to be working with Buckinghamshire New University on this latest project,” said Derren Nisbet, Managing Director of Unit4 UK&I.

“In an increasingly competitive market, the University’s leaders recognize the need to provide the modern student with the information they require using digital technologies. University life for students that pay fees is increasingly becoming influenced by the wrap around service and experience that complements teaching.”
