MiDES is a service developed by RCU and the Association of Colleges (AoC) for member colleges. The service provides AoC college members with a regularly updated suite of in-year benchmarked intelligence reports.
The value of being able to harness in-year data for decision-making within colleges is significant as is the potential for the MiDES reports to contribute to business and curriculum planning as well as to the Self Assessment Report process.
