One of the options open to HEIs to enter data into the RAE 2008 data collection system is to bulk upload data using the import functionality. A temporary web-site has been put in place (available until 30 November 2007) to allow HEIs to test the import routines of the RAE 2008 data collection system. This site is for test purposes only and will not be used as part of the RAE 2008 submission process. The site will allow HEIs to review their processes of using the data collection system without using the live system, for example to test their methods of importing different types of data.

Please see the test web-site section for more information.
