Engaging and Communication

It is essential you check your student email account regularly as this is the primary form of communication used by the University. Your tutors and Programme Leader will communicate with you when appropriate through your student email account and through Blackboard. Sometimes your School Office might send you important letters and messages through your student email account, this includes your ratified (confirmed) results.

You will also get more general communications from askUS about opportunities, activities and important University announcements. The Student Channel at carries regular news and announcements; the Student Channel is the home page on browsers on open access PCs around the campus. You will receive an askUS Newsletter most weeks throughout term-time. The newsletter contains a summary of the news and announcements and will be sent to your student email account.

AskUS will also send you news bulletins from time to time through your student email account, whenever there is an especially important message.

It is important that you keep your contact details including your address and mobile phone number up to date on our records. In emergency cases – for example, if part or all of the University is closed for any reason – we may send you an SMS message to your mobile phone. You can update your personal details on the Student Channel at
