Our top tips for social network safety:
- Always create strong passwords for online accounts and update them regularly on social media sites. Longer passwords (8-10 characters)that contain letters, numbers and symbols are more secure.
- Avoid using the same password for multiple social media sites.
- Be cautious of the information you post publicly such as your Customer Reference Number, address or date of birth. Use the sites privacy settings to limit who can see your personal information and posts.
- Be careful who you befriend. You put yourself at risk by not taking the time to filter who you accept into your inner circle. Friend requests can be used by social bots to hack your network and by phishers trying to steal your personal information.
- Stay up-to-date with changes to your social network settings as small changes can cause big problems. If a site decides to changes its privacy settings or policy this could leave your personal details more publicly available than they had been previously.
- Review your social media profiles. Always consider how others may view the information you provide about yourself, your family and your friends and remember that social media sites are public resources.
- Please apply for your Student Loans as soon as possible.
- UK students should apply online. Non-means tested students have part of their application pre-populated so just check it though.
- EU students still have to complete a paper application. These forms are found on DIRECTGOV website under Student Finance England.
- The course fees for 2013/14 are on the University Student Finance website under Tuition Fees or ring 01225 383045 if you are unsure.
Please remember to deduct any course deposits paid to the University from your tuition fees payment.
