Unit & Programme Management System Home Page

The Unit & Programme Management System (UPMS) is used for creating new and editing existing units and programmes. The System is the primary way for Schools to manage unit availability in SITS and programme and unit information that is published in the Programme and Unit Catalogue. It is essential the information in UPMS is kept up to date. It is used to inform other key processes, including timetabling, online unit registration, exam scheduling and processing, and progression and awards.

Full support for using UPMS is available on BEAM. For further assistance please see our FAQs or contact approval-help@bristol.ac.uk. ‌
