The following terms of use apply to all areas of the Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle) and connected services. This code is in addition to all other service policies.


Two 1st party cookies are used by this site:

The essential one is the session cookie, usually called MoodleSession. You must allow this cookie into your browser to provide continuity and maintain your login from page to page. If you block this cookie you will not be able to login to the site. When you log out or close the browser this cookie is destroyed (in your browser and on the server).

The other cookie is purely for convenience, usually called something like MOODLEID. It just remembers your username within the browser. This means when you return to this site the username field on the login page will be already filled out for you. It is safe to refuse this cookie - you will just have to retype your username every time you log in.

This site does not use any 3rd party cookies typically used by behavioural advertising networks to target ads to users based on their prior actions.

By using this website, you consent to the collection, storage and usage of the above data in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

You can find information on how to switch off cookies in your browser here.
