Resources to Help you Prepare for Next Academic Year

When you are ready to begin preparing for the next academic year, there are a number of online resources and supports to help you get started.


If you are a new student and have not yet enrolled then welcome and congratulations! Please see the resources listed below which are open to everyone:

Academic Support and Resources

This includes links to some online maths and study skills resources that students can access before they enrol.

College of Engineering Handbooks

This includes descriptions of each module, with information about how students will be assessed, and a reading list for each module as well.

The Centre for Academic Success

The CAS is in the process of developing a pre-arrival course to help prepare students to begin their studies. This will include a look at essential study skills, use of Zoom and Canvas, etc. While this is still in development, we are hoping to make this available to students the week before Welcome Week. More information will be available nearer to the date of the course.



In addition to the resources listed above that are open to everyone, you can also access the following resources and supports:

Maths and Statistics, and Language and Writing support:

  • Tutors in the Centre for Academic Success are offering 1-1 Zoom appointments for help with maths, statistics, writing and language.

Research, Referencing and Library support:

IT and Remote Learning

  • As of 31st July 2020, the University’s official online learning platform will be Canvas. To prepare for next year, we recommend that you read through the Passport to Canvas and the Student User Guidance pages to ensure you are ready to engage with your studies.
  • To help you prepare for new ways of working next year, the Centre for Academic Success has created a Remote Learning Guide, with advice on using Zoom, learning online and a help section on home WiFI and Broadband connection.

General Resources:

  • General Module Exam Feedback is available on the College Intranet for both semesters TB1 and TB2 of 2019-20. To see this general feedback, please log in to the College Intranet and select Module Exam Feedback from the main menu.

  • Past Papers will be added to Canvas in the near future, but for now if you would like access to these please email the Student Information Team and we can share a OneDrive link to this. An email was also sent out to all students with the link.
