SylviaAcad is the name of the database used for the academic management of students and programmes at UNIL.
It was developed between 1997 and 1998 as a prototype for the Biology section of the Faculty of Science. Over the course of the integration of the various faculties, new features have been developed, while retaining a common core to cover the basic management of the studies.
The School of Biology was one of the first users to adopt computerised management on SylviaAcad from A to Z. Since 2004 the study plans and the students files from the School of Biology have been fully managed in SylviaAcad.

The academic management of programmes in SylviaAcad includes managing the study plans (schedules and descriptions of courses, schedules, exam protocols and result calculations) as well as managing students (registrations, exam results, Bachelor and Masters degree supplements).
The centralised information in SylviaAcad is exported for various uses:
In UNIDOC: for Internet access intended for a wide audience to find out the study plans (lists, descriptions and course schedules)
In MyUnil: for limited access with a login primarily intended for students to consult their schedules, course descriptions and their academic record (marks and exam results)
In ADIFAC: for the FBM the data entries in the schedules are recaptured in order to count the hours taught by each teacher
