Resources for current students

IT support

To help you in your studies we provide a range of learning resources supported by experienced staff. IT Services provides Computing, Media and Reprographics facilities and services including :-

  • Over 1000 computers for student use - Some PC rooms are open 24 hours a day
  • IT training as part of your degree – e.g. Word processing, spreadsheets, European Computer Driving Licence (Basic and Advanced)
  • Blackboard (a commercial Virtual Learning Environment) to contribute to a rich learning experience for students. It allows learning materials to be made available on-line. It is usually arranged into modules or courses and only the students enrolled on a particular module can see the resources
