Help & Support
Where to Get Help
If you need help and support, please ask. We are here to help you!
Please speak to your tutor first. They need to know if you have an issue and may know the answer to your problem.
If you have a problem with your account, for example, you have forgotten your password, are locked out of your account, etc., you can contact the IT Help Desk and ask for their help to resolve your issue. You can set up account recovery for your account yourself, please see this guide: Account Recovery and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) guide.
