Frequently Asked Questions Frequently Asked Questions

I'm a continuing student. What is a Training Pathway and do I have to do it?

  • Guidance on the transitional arrangements for the new Training Pathway system, which will replace the credit requirement, can be found here.

I've found a course, but I can't enrol from the course catalogue. What should I do?

  • Enrolment is made through e:Vision. Refer to our enrolment pages for further guidance.

Why can't I see all of the activities I have done on e:Vision?

  • E:vision only records PPD modules and events with module codes. You should record any external activities, such as courses or conferences at your Annual Review.  The PPD modules on e:Vision and the record of external or experiential activities jointly form your record.

How do I record activities that do not have PPD module codes?

  • You will find a set of forms to help you plan and record different types of external activities in the section of this site on recording your development.

I want to learn a language. How do I find out about courses?

  • Guidance on language courses provided at UEA and seeking advice on external courses, can be found under the Languages at UEA webpage.

Can I audit a taught module at undergraduate or postgraduate level?

  • In many cases, yes. You should seek permission of the module leader first. If they agree that you can join the module, you should then contact the Learning and Teaching Service to ensure that you are registered and are not taking part in the assessment.

I need specialist IT skills, does the Faculty's PPD programme provide this?

  • The Faculty does not provide training in specialist software. For guidance on other sources of training, please refer to the CSED IT Documentation page.

What other training opportunities are there outside the University?

  • Many institutions, such as libraries, archives and other universities, as well as museums and galleries, run workshops. The National Centre for Research Methods also has a website and directory of training courses that arts and humanities students might find useful: http://www.ncrm.ac.uk/training/
