Institute of Continuing Education

Our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) allows you to study and learn online, access learning resources, and interact with your tutor and fellow students.

If you are an ICE student, you can access the VLE using the following links.

Access the VLE – for MSt courses – for non-MSt courses

How to use the VLE

If you are studying on an award-bearing course, it is essential that you have an email account and regular access to an internet connected computer. All course communications will be sent via email.

Computing facilities

The computing facilities available at a public library or internet café may be sufficient, and unlimited free computing and internet access will be available to you within the University Library throughout your course.

Your online course area

Access to your online course area will open a few weeks before the course start date. You will receive full login instructions and guidance by email from the eLearning team. If you have not received these instructions before the course start date please contact us via the support form.

Your login details

If you did not supply an email address on enrolment, or have changed your email address, please inform us by using the Change of Details Form. Your login name will be a University identifier (also known as a CRSid) supplied by the University Information Service. This will function as your user name to access electronic resources at the University Library and you will be entered onto the University’s internal electronic Lookup service as an ICE student. Please note that, with the exception of MSt students, ICE students are not eligible for a email account.

Submitting assignments

As an award-bearing student, you are expected to submit your assignments online. Feedback on your assignments will also be delivered online.

Access to learning resources

You will retain access to the learning resources on your course for two academic years after you have completed it.
