Update to IT Security Policy
From the 1 May 2023, the University will revert to the original IT Security Policy for students. This means all student leavers will have access to their account for one year after the official course end date before they are disabled and subsequently deleted.
Dates accounts to be disabled
Student leavers, whose accounts have already exceeded this limit, will now be notified via their student email address 30 days before their account will be disabled. The disablements will begin from 24 April 2023 and should be completed by 30 April 2023.
What access will you lose?
You will lose access to any app or system that required you to sign in with you University account. This includes the Student Hub, your University Office 365 licence (e.g. Outlook email, Teams, OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. – this includes any device you have installed this on), Blackboard, PebblePad, LinkedIn Learning and any other application or system that needed a login.
Tips and resources
You may wish to move all your contacts, forward any important emails to a personal account and save all your course notes, essays, dissertations, module books and handouts elsewhere - all of this could be useful for future reference. There are free versions of Microsoft products you may find useful while other online providers offer similar email, word processing and spreadsheet services.
Our Graduates can sign up to our Careers Service for up to 3 years after their course and don’t forget to stay connected with us by joining our Alumni.
Please note, we cannot authorise extensions to access due to the increased security risks these accounts pose, especially given the additional period of access that the University has already provided.
