‘I think this service will benefit students greatly! The vast range of content means students across the whole university will find material related to their programmes. I’m jealous I didn’t have a subscription when I was a student!’


What have students said?

  • “I love this service but it's too expensive for me to buy. So thank you so much!”  Part B student, Computer Science
  • “As a Web Development student I just want to express my gratitude for the department taking the initiative to invest in something like this. I currently use Treehouse to sharpen my programming skills but I have heard good things about Lynda.com.  This is an invaluable resource for the students of the computer science department, and will personally help me in my FYP [final year project].”  Final Year student, Computer Science
  • “This is fantastic. I’ve used the site before through LinkedIn and it’s got really good stuff on it.” Postgraduate Masters student, School of Business & Economics
