    eCSIS is the University’s electronic course and student information system and PIP is its web based interface.  Most staff find that PIP meets their needs, however, for staff in certain roles, who need to maintain student programmes, eCSIS access is required. Regular training is available for both eCSIS and PIP.  Once you have been granted access to PIP and/or eCSIS, a member of staff from Student Central will contact you to organise training. You are also welcome to come along to any of the courses if you feel that you need a refresher.
