General Help

Help with logins, site structure, site functionality...

I was registered with the website. Can I still login?

Only departmental staff can now login to the site. Student resources have been moved to WebLearn, so student login to the site is no longer required.

General users of the site can no-longer login or signup to the site.

If you are member of staff having problems logging in please contact the Web Team: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

I can't find a page on the new site.

Much old or outdate material has not been included in the new, so it's possible the page you are trying to find no longer exists. We've tried to make the site structure as clear as possible, but if you believe a crucial page is missing from the site please contact the Web Team: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

We haven't deleted anything from the old site, so we should be able to recover missing content.

Why have the URLs changed?

The site has been completely redeveloped using different technology to improve functionality and appearance. For this reason we had to change the structure and the URLs for the site. We've implemented URL redirects for the major sections of the site to help people find the information they we're looking for.
