ucisa Corporate Information Systems Survey 2019

Each year ucisa provides a survey of Corporate Information systems used across the sector. This is an invaluable resource made freely available to all ucisa member HEIs looking to share experiences with other institutions and understand trends in the marketplace.

It only takes just a few minutes to complete this survey. Last year 65% of institutions completed the survey, which is a great response, but we are keen to improve on this. The more responses we get the more valuable the resulting data will be to all of our members, here’s what one member said:

“We love the annual reports as they provide relevant information that really helps to paint a clear picture of where the industry is today and its challenges.”

The ucisa CIS survey has now opened for 2019. Please email admin@ucisa.ac.uk for a copy of the survey for completion.

This year, ucisa Women In Tech group (WiT) are conducting a survey around gender and recruitment practices across the ucisa community. The aim of the survey is initially to produce a “snapshot” and in subsequent years to develop an indication of trends. The resulting report will be made freely available to all ucisa FE and HE members looking to share experiences with other institutions and get a unique insight into this interesting area of discussion across the sector.

The ucisa WiT survey has now opened for 2019


It only takes just a few minutes to complete this survey. The more responses we get, the more valuable the resulting data will be to all of our members.

The survey will remain open until the 29th November. All being well, the survey results will be published by January 2020 and the results will be a feature of the annual conference.
