Blogs (WordPress)

We host University blogs on the WordPress publishing platform.

Departments, teams, and individuals use the blog to showcase their work and activities.

Blogs should be updated on a regular basis and contribute something distinct and valuable to the University’s digital domain.

You can request a blog as a student or member of staff, but consider whether setting up and maintaining a blog is a commitment you have the time and resources to make.

Wiki (Confluence)

You can use the Wiki to publish content for internal audiences.

You can restrict access to read (and edit) Wiki content to specific individuals or groups in the University, making it a suitable platform for publishing guidance and internal reports for sub-sections of the community.

You need your University username (like abc12) and password to log in to Wiki.


The University uses Moodle to support training and teaching, host resources and online activities, and support student collaboration.

Students and staff can use Moodle to:

  • access resources, including lecture notes and videos
  • collaborate in forums and messaging
  • submit coursework
  • take quizzes and assessments

To log in to Moodle, you need your University username (like abc12) and password.
