The University has an online Virtual Learning Environment called Blackboard.

Each year group has a hub on Blackboard. Your year group tutors will use this to post essential announcements, and the Online learning section will be used for virtual meetings.

Each module you study will have associated material on Blackboard, including important information about assessment. Blackboard should be your first port of call for any information related to teaching. Submission of work is made via module pages in Blackboard, and grades and feedback are also accessed there. Virtual teaching will occur via the online teaching tab.
