Your digital practice

About digital practice

Our University provides us with a wide range of technologies to support student education and research. You can access many of these technologies in lecture theatres, clusters, labs, at your desk and via a web browser. This enables you to work flexibly and collaboratively with your students and peers at other institutions across the world. All of our digital practice development supports our University’s strategic priorities relating to digital:
