Saving your work

  • Save your work regularly and in a secure location.
  • If you are in a Computer Lab, always use the Save As function or you will lose your work.
  • When working on an email attachment, make sure you save your work regularly using the Save As function - and not the Save function, or you will lose your work.
  • Back up your work and your assignments. For that, check our tips on Saving your work.

Hand in your assignment


  • Plan where and how you are going to print your assignment well in advance of handing time.
  • Ensure that your Pharos printing account is in credit.

Online Assessment

Computer Labs

  • Be mindful of others in Computer Labs.
  • Respect the IT premises at all times, even when working late at night. Please do not leave your rubbish behind! If you witness something untowards in a Computer Lab, please contact the Security team.
