In October of 2015 we launched our very own student portal, called iCan. A web-based platform designed to enhance our students’ learning journey. Over the years we have continued to optimise iCan, making improvements along the way that add more and more value. We are committed to ensuring that technology enables learning success for all of our students.

iCan is a place for our students to manage their studies, connect with their lectures and fellow students all in one easy-to-use place! Read on for some important information about iCan.
