How to clear your browser cache

Many issues experienced by students can be resolved by clearing the browser settings. We therefore recommend following this guidance on clearing your cache and cookies.

Clearing your Internet Cache and Cookies

Please note: work devices may be blocked by company policy and will need to investigated by your on-site IT Team.

Using a different web browser

You may wish to try using a different web browser to access your studies. Usually the university recommends 'Google Chrome', however Firefox or Internet Explorer can also be used.

Using a different device

Another option to consider is trying a different device; so for example if you are trying to access your account via a smartphone or tablet, we would recommend trying a desktop computer or laptop.

The University usually recommends students complete the majority of their studies on a computer/laptop, and that smart devices can be used to compliment a student’s learning.
