What happens if I do not accept Portal cookies

If you do not accept cookies then it will not be possible to log you into the Portal.

This is because the portal needs to know who you are and whether you are a staff or student in order to deliver the correct information to you. We use cookies to store this information so if you do not allow them then we have no way of knowing who you are and what information you are meant to see.

If you do not accept cookies then you will still be able to view all the public pages of the portal.
