DRS launches real-time registration solution for Tier 4 student monitoring

Education technology provider DRS has launched a real-time registration solution to monitor the attendance of overseas students studying in UK universities and colleges on a Tier 4 visa. The Tier 4 student visa service offers overseas students the opportunity to gain recognised qualifications from reputable and government approved universities and colleges in the UK.

It is a Home Office requirement that all approved colleges and universities report any unauthorised Tier 4 student absences and missed expected contacts. DRS’ real-time registration solution, IntelliReg®, monitors and electronically records student attendance accurately, efficiently and in real-time, therefore helping these establishments to comply with Home Office regulations.

DRS IntelliReg® is an electronic registration solution, which records the presence, absence and lateness of students and is able to fully integrate with the cashless environment. With IntelliReg®, students use their card, fingertip or a PIN to register. All readers are in constant communication with the controlling PC, delivering real-time information, necessary for managing registration and attendance accurately and efficiently. Each registration can determine the whereabouts of students at any given time. IntelliReg® also has the capability to interface seamlessly with the management information system (MIS) and time tabling module, providing real-time update of data for accurate attendance monitoring whilst saving valuable teaching time.

DRS sales & marketing director, Denton van Niekerk, comments: “DRS IntelliReg® is introducing innovation into education establishments, helping to track the whereabouts of students and delivering information in real-time whilst complying with the Home Office reporting requirements.”
