IT Training

The Training service provided by IT services is available to all students at the University. We aim to provide support and advice to facilitate students to work more effectively with the applications delivered by IT Services.

Services we offer

Free Training Webinars – We offer free training webinars for Microsoft applications and some specialist and academic software such as SPSS, Python, NVivo and many more. Training sessions are usually delivered in a classroom setting but are currently being delivered as webinars via Microsoft Teams.

If you are interested in our Training Webinars they can be booked via our booking system

Free Qualifications - We offer Microsoft Office Specialist qualifications free of charge to all students. The qualifications are self-study, for which we provide all the required resources, and when you have completed your study, you can book an online remote test.

This year one of our students was crowned Microsoft Office Specialist UK and Ireland Champion 2020 in Microsoft Office Excel winning a trip to Disneyland, Florida to compete in the MOS World Championships in 2021.

Online Learning Resources – All of our Training sessions are supported by free online learning resources (manuals, quick start guides and videos). You can find our IT Learning Resources site here
