Once you have enrolled on line, you'll be given access to Canvas, our Virtual Learning Environment. For undergraduate students this will be from 21 August 2020 and for postgraduate students it will be 5 October 2020.
On Canvas you will find a site for each of your registered modules and within each module you will have the opportunity to sign up for teaching sessions. We recommend you do this as soon as possible as sessions will become full quickly.
Each module will offer an outline of the activity on your module and a schedule of teaching sessions. You can use the calendar function in Canvas to view your timetable for the semester.
