Blackboard is currently unavailable

We are pleased to announce that Blackboard, the University’s Virtual Learning Environment is moving to a managed hosting (SaaS) deployment method over the summer.

Monday 15 July is our scheduled Go-Live date. Please be aware that there is likely to be some intermittent service during the transition from our 'read only' on-premise Blackboard delivery to our new live cloud hosted SaaS delivery, to allow for the change-over in authentication. We anticipate this process will take place in the late afternoon of the 15 July.


You can still access The Student Support pages and links to your timetables are also available.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
