Support for web authors

Find out more about support for our web authors, including news and guidelines, information about editing access, tutorials and information about the Web Authors' Group.

Our team is responsible for the strategic development and management of the University's use of the web and related digital media. Our role includes the production and development of central corporate web pages, planning and editing content, and the online implementation of the University's brand.

We work closely with a team of web authors across the University to make sure our website content is of the highest quality. This includes providing web author guidance and a series of training courses to develop and maintain web authoring skills.

  • writing effective web content
