LABplus: information for academics and teaching staff


We are always looking to provide students with new equipment and resources to enhance their studies. If you feel that students on your modules could be supported by existing or new material in LABplus, please contact us. The technical staff are able to provide guidance and assistance.

If you are new to the University or have not visited for a while we are happy to give you a tour.
