What is it?

Discussions is a message board for CMP students and staff. It is accessible via The Portal.

The board was set up by senior advisor Pierre Chardaire to allow CMP students to report problems, ask for advice or make suggestions. 

Students can post anonymously on the Discussions board. The CMP staff will not see your name if you post anonymously.

Messages will be responded to by Pierre, other advisors and staff, your student rep or other students.

What can I post?

Here are some examples:

"Help! My coursework partners aren't showing up!"

"It would be nice if the Lab PCs had this piece of software..."

"I don't understand C++. Where can I get some extra help?"
