I've had a look though the documentation, but it's a bit beyond my technical expertise. Would it be possible to ask for some assistance so that I don't break anything?

It looks like Wikiversity has the same templates en wiki does, so it makes it a little easier; you can just copy everything from en wiki. The template data on Wikiversity is outdated, so you need to

1) Copy all the template data from en wiki to Wikiversity for the following templates: Citation, Cite web, Cite book, Cite journal, Cite news, Cite thesis (that's everything between the <templatedata></templatedata> part in the Template:Citation/doc page). If you have someone with import rights it's easier but can be done manually too.

2) Copy this message verbatim: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Citoid-template-type-map.json

And then you should be good.

Thank you Mvolz (WMF). I've started copying across the <templatedata>. Sadly I don't have edit permissions for , but we're one step closer!

Fantastic! I've copied across the current wikipedia versions of the cite_X/doc <templatedata>, and one of the wikiversity admins has now imported the final json https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Citoid-template-type-map.json page. Everything seems to be working! If you have a moment, please do check if there's anything I've missed. Thanks again for the help.
