StudyNet is changing

Early in Summer 2023 we will be releasing a new and improved StudyNet portal built on new technology to provide you with a more personalised experience and user-friendly features to support your studies. 

Head over to the StudyNet homepage to learn more about why we are making the change and what the new portal will offer and if you are interested in trying an early preview, take a look at our beta and use the feedback buttons to tell us what you think. 

What if my modules are incorrect?

Your modules are updated automatically from your your Student Record.  If your module is missing in Canvas, check your Student Record to make sure you are registerd on the module. If your Student Record is incorrect, please contact the Ask Herts service.

If you have a module listed on your Student Record and is missing from Canvas, please allow two working days for a link to appear.  If a link is still missing, this is usually of one of two reasons:

The module is a Semester B module and we have not yet created a website for it. Don't worry. We create Semester B modules nearer the start of Semester B. 

The other common reason is your module might be what is known as a 'linked module'. This is where the module runs under several different module codes on different programmes of study but timetabled together. Often the Module Leader will decide to link the modules together and teach you are one cohort. If you see a module with a similar title, that is not in your list on your Student Record. It most likely be a linked module. Check the module's homepage where your tutor hopefully will identify all the modules using the website.
