When you have fully registered, you’ll be able to access our online teaching and learning platform, Canvas, where some of your induction programme will be delivered.

To supplement the Canvas online learning materials there will be synchronous induction events. A timetable will be available on or before the 12th of September.

It is vital that you engage with and attend both the online and in person activities, to ensure that you have all the information you need to have a successful and enjoyable time while studying this year.
