The new LIS Self-Service Portal is now available, enabling you to log a helpdesk call or request an IT service instead of phoning LIS Customer Support.
From 2016/17, the structure of UCLan's Academic Calendar has changed to better support our students moving forwards.
The main difference will enable most students to finish the academic year by mid-July knowing they are able to return and progress the following September.
In summary the changes are:
We hope you’re enjoying your summer break and can’t wait to have you back on campus so you can continue with #TheUCLanExperience.
Please check you have done everything you need to do to get ready for the new academic year ahead.
If you use Key Note market reports for your studies, you need to know that our subscription to this resource will end on 31 July 2016. Due to the fact that Key Note have not been publishing any new content since May 2016, UCLan's institutional subscription to this resource will cease at the end of July. Until that time and while the subscription remains active, Key Note reports will still be available to download.
Other market report content platforms are available and students are recommended to investigate Mintel, Passport and databases such as WARC - LIS are currently scoping a substitute database which will be announced in due course.
Please contact CollegeLibrarians@uclan.ac.uk for further details.
Please note this advance warning that Blackboard Learn - UCLan’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and the Student Portal will be unavailable due to the Blackboard upgrade taking place between Friday 22 July at 12 noon and Monday 25 July at 12 noon.
This will ensure that Blackboard remains up to date and compatible with other software developments, complies with current browser technology and is secure.
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause but we’ll ensure you have access to everything you need through our Student Support web pages.
Any queries should be directed to the LIS Customer support Team
The University subscribes to lynda.com - a fantastic online resource providing video courses and tutorials in a wide range of topics. UCLan students receive free, unlimited access to this incredible service.
Each training course comprises a series of short videos, so it’s flexible enough to fit in around your studies; allowing you to watch either a whole course or specific videos whenever you need them.
Following each course, you will be awarded with a 'certificate of completion', providing documentary evidence for potential employers as well as a record to add to your personal development portfolio.
