New Students : Getting Started with Technology

Important: If you have not already done so, you will need to activate your student account – this will enable you to access your online resources such as your e-mail, Unilife (your student portal), Blackboard and a range of other online learning tools and systems.

Are you a new student?

Induction sessions are provided for all new students at the beginning of their course. Sessions are usually arranged on a course basis, and are organised across a whole faculty.

Your learning is supported by the use of our Unilearn online learning environment, offering you access to course materials, resources and announcements and a range of other online communication tools and learning systems anytime you are connected to the internet. Blackboard is the main online learning environment and your tutors may also choose to incorporate some of the other tools in some of their teaching activities.

Below are several resources designed to support you in accessing and getting the most out of your IT account and the associated learning tools and systems.

We recommend that you:
