Terms and Conditions

StudyNet is the University’s online learning environment - the gateway to your modules, timetable, student record, online library, important news and messages, as well as help and support, anywhere, anytime. You can also use StudyNet for groupwork, discussions and to submit your coursework online.

StudyNet is provided for academic purposes only. Using StudyNet is generally a matter of common sense and courtesy. The regulations for its use reflect this. Please note that rudeness or other unreasonable behaviour will not be tolerated.

You must keep your individual StudyNet username and password confidential and change your password regularly and at any time when you suspect that someone else might know it.

StudyNet holds personal information about you taken from your student record (your name, course information, University login and your email address) and allows you to create a personal profile and store other information about yourself.

Use of StudyNet is subject to English law. This means you have a responsibility to ensure that any information or material which you post to StudyNet will not be intentionally false, offensive, defamatory, threatening, obscene or unlawful and will not infringe the rights of any third party and you indemnify and will keep the University indemnified against any loss or damage the University may suffer as a result of your breach of such warranty.

Remember that all published materials are subject to copyright legislation. You must check what is permissible under the ‘fair dealing’ exceptions before scanning and storing electronic copies in StudyNet and for any other use obtain the prior written permission of the copyright owner.

You should be aware that StudyNet is logged and monitored by authorised staff as permitted by English law. This includes monitoring and evaluation of StudyNet usage so that staff can evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching and student support and for institutional purposes to measure achievement against targets. Further analysis of stored files and/or interception of communication is allowed for a range of purposes, including, but not confined to, recording evidence of transactions, detecting unauthorised use, ensuring compliance with the University regulations and in connection with any criminal investigation. The University does not need to gain consent from staff and students before monitoring or intercepting takes place for any of these purposes, although in undertaking these operations the privacy of individuals will be respected

Please read the University policy and regulations (UPR IM19) covering use of the Internet, StudyNet and other intranets, social media and all online communications and collaboration.
