A computer account will be set up for you to access our online resources, both prior to your arrival to campus and during your course.
This account will be available from up to 10 days prior to your course start date.
When your account has been created you should receive an email notifying you that it is ready to activate. Then just follow the instructions given here to activate and use your computer account. However you do not NEED the email, so if you do not receive one (perhaps we got your address wrong), then 10 days or less before your course starts simply follow these instructions anyway, to activate your account.
Activating your computer account will also enable you to access the "IT Induction" materials prior to your arrival, saving you having to do a full IT Induction on Day 1.
Once you have completed the account activation as above you can then do the IT Induction online. Going through this information now will save you from having to do a full IT Induction session when you arrive.
Full details are found on the "Instructions" page here and in the "IT induction" available online, but your account user name is your student G-ID which you can find on your Confirmation of Enrolment documentation that you will have received upon enrolling in your course.
As explained on the "Instructions" page here, your default password is based on your date of birth (DOB). Once you have activated your account you will set your own password.
If you cannot activate your account or have any troubles with the process or the online IT Induction please wait until you arrive and on Day 1 you will get personal help during an IT Induction session and we will fix this for you then. Do not worry, you will not miss out on anything because of this - we will fix it for you on Day 1.
