Warwick Taught Masters Scholarship Scheme

Writing about web page

The University of Warwick is pleased to announce an innovative scholarship scheme totaling £600,000 for postgraduate taught masters students. The scholarship will contribute to course costs and living expenses. The scholarship scheme is part of a Higher Education Council for England (HEFCE) initiative aimed at removing barriers to postgraduate education. In combination with HEFCE funding, a number of these scholarships will also be supported through the generous charitable donations of alumni and friends of the University, who recognise the challenges many undergraduates face in continuing to postgraduate study.

The scheme is open to applicants who are applying for entry to postgraduate study in 2014/15. You do not have to have undertaken your degree course at the University of Warwick to be eligible to apply.

Tools for working smarter and more effectively

Writing about web page

It is TechDis Tuesday this week! Join online at 13:00 for a guided exploration of the TechDis Toolbox.

The TechDis Toolbox is a collection of resources which give useful hints and tips on technologies that can help individuals work quicker, slicker and smarter.

JISC TechDis has a history of providing simple easy to use resources for tutors and lecturers. Here we have shifted our focus and Toolbox is aimed directly at the end users – learners.

The contents of the Toolbox were determined via feedback from groups of former students who were asked “what should your tutor have told you but never did?”. The development of the final resource has been shaped by our learner ambassadors. That’s why it contains bite-size videos, short guides, animations and brief audio files.

These small bits of just-in-time information can be easily understood and absorbed allowing users to learn something new and put it into practice straight away. Most people use technology every day. Using it smarter can help people be more productive, organised and creative.

While written primarily for those with disabilities or difficulties, it is useful for just about anyone who wants to gain or improve on the skills most valued by employers. It explores many common workplace technologies and explains how to get the most out of them.

Grab a pair of headphones for your computer, load a browser and go to a few minutes before 13:00 on Tuesday, 13 November.

Password issues

Writing about web page

On Friday 13th August 2010 and throughout the following weekend, IT Services are migrating all student email accounts from SquirrelMail to a new service called Live@Edu.

We have identified that a small number of student accounts have inadvertently had their passwords reset in the process of performing this migration. Students affected are most likely to be distance learning students or students who have never used a workarea PC.

If your account has been affected you will find that you can no longer sign in to email, or to the Warwick web site or to PCs in workareas. If this happens to you, please contact us on extension 51000 (or 024 761 51000 from off-campus or a mobile) and we will reset your password immediately.

Our apologies for the inconvenience this has caused. For more information on the email migration and the steps needed to access your email from now on, please see our email migration pages.
