Parents and Carers Upcoming event

The next event will be held in the Autumn term. In the meantime we hope you have some time off over the summer.

Online forum for staff and postgraduate students

The original forum is still live, although currently not very active. However, if you wish to post any questions please do. We are sure there are plenty of staff members who would be happy to help.

Our online forum can be accessed here:

You will need to use your University username and password and also be enrolled to access the pages (go to to enrol).
