Before you start your course

Welcome to the new academic year on your course, in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University.  Please make use of the following resources before you start your classes this year.

At the start of your course

At the start of your classes, you will receive a course induction from your tutor.  This will include detailed information about the course content and support available for you. You may find the following information useful as well.

Support during your course

Click on the 'Library Resources' tab at the top of the page for access to a selection of high-quality sources to use for your assignments.  This includes ProQuest Central, a leading multi-disciplinary online resource that you can use to access databases across all major subject areas.  A link to ProQuest Central has been added to your college VLE and your course leader will be able to advise you on where to find it.

Most students on Sheffield Hallam courses will use APA, although some courses will use other referencing styles.  Ask your course leader if you're not sure.  You can also use ProQuest RefWorks to manage your references.  Click on the 'Referencing' tab for help with citing and referencing, and to find out about RefWorks.

If you need to find out how to submit a request to repeat an assessment attempt, click on the 'Get Help' tab at the top of the page and scroll down to the 'Dealing with illness and difficult circumstances' box.
