Your academic team will let you know if you will be taught using Canvas, and clear signposting and links in both Canvas and VITAL will help you find your academic modules easily.

Canvas is designed so that it works equally as well on phones and tablets as on PCs. To download your free ‘Canvas Student’ app, follow these five simple steps:
