Minerva maintenance this December

Minerva will be unavailable between 12 noon on Friday, 13 December and 3pm on Tuesday, 17 December as we undertake work to make the service more resilient. You can find up-to-date information about this work on the Minerva blog.

If you have any questions or concerns about how being unable to access Minerva may affect you, please contact your school.

Planning for revision

While Minerva is unavailable you won't be able to access teaching materials, such as video recordings of your lectures (Lecture Capture), digitised articles from you reading lists (Online Course Readings) and lecture slides. If you want to revise during this time, you can prepare by downloading your digitised readings, lecture slides and other files to your computer before 13 December. Please be aware that recordings of lectures are not available to download - be sure to watch any recordings before 13 December (Lecture Capture will be available again when access to Minerva is restored on 17 December).

You will still be able to access reading lists and past exam papers and consult the January exam timetable by using direct links.

Assessment deadlines

Your tutors have been asked to move any assessment deadlines that were set between 12 noon on Friday, 13 December and 3pm on Tuesday, 17 December. If you think you still have an assessment due or are late submitting during this time, please contact your school.
