Enrollment Problems?

  • Blackboard is fully linked with the University Registration System. If you don't see your modules listed, it likely means that there is an issue with your registration or you have not chosen your modules. In all cases, please allow up to 48 hours for new additions and changes to be reflected in Blackboard.
  • There are two ways to access Blackboard for Students - Clicking on the link to Blackboard from which uses Edugate, or by clicking on student login at (also uses Edugate). In all cases, your username is your student number,and your password is your Student IT Password
  • If your module says (Currently not available) alongside its name, it means that you are correctly registered for it, but your lecturer has chosen to either not use blackboard for their teaching, or they have not yet released the module to students.

How do I Login?

  • Both Student Email and Student access to Blackboard use a mechanism called 'Edugate' for authentication. To log onto Blackboard click: here
  • NB: If clicking 'Student Login' keeps bringing you back to this page, it means that you are probably not fully registered for your modules. You should shut down your browser completely, and try to log in again, using only your student number as your username.
  • Staff logins, and other non-student accounts will continue to use the default login interface above.
To login as a student, click on 'Student Login'
