University life may be your first experience as an independently responsible adult. You will get a lot of information thrown your way--much more than you may be used to. How you manage that information will determine how successful you are in your studies, how many unique opportunities you get to explore, and ultimately how ready you will be for your future career.

You can always count on the university to support you in your academic success and to look after your wellbeing, but it is up to you to accept, receive, manage, and be aware of the information and opportunities being shared with you. To help you with this, we've created this presentation to...

  • Outline the university's main student communication channels that you need to be aware of to ensure your success
  • What information they provide
  • How to access them
  • Managing what you receive
  • How our online learning environment CampusMoodle is used for communication
  • What information is on Moodle
  • How to access it 
  • How to manage your notifications/communications from Moodle

Having trouble accessing?

Please note if we are made aware of issues accessing a particular session we’ll try to make alternative arrangements; for example by re-running later in the week or providing a recording.

Finally, the Union and university both have a wide range of support services which will provide dedicated and high quality support throughout the semester. You can find out more via Campus Moodle

Energy price increase set for the UK

Consumer regulator Ofgem has announced that the price cap on energy will increase on 1 April 2021 due to rising wholesale costs and growth in demand.

This means that a typical household on a default energy tariff could expect a bill increase of £96 per year.

This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
