A selection of resources from the Learning Hub

The Student Study and Resource Centre (Building L24) houses the Learning Hub, a technical support service, University Library book drop and a drop-in point for Education Liaison Librarians and Study Support Advisors.

The Learning Hub

The Learning Hub is a resource base that primarily supports the work and study of staff and student teachers at the Institute of Education.


The Learning Hub has a wide range of resources to aid teaching and lesson planning, including a substantial collection of children's literature, teaching schemes, reading schemes, Big Books, puppets and posters, all of which are available for term-long loan.

Students also have access to a small reference collection of academic textbooks covering all aspects of education and educational practice. These books are available for students to use while at the Learning Hub.

Study Space and Computing Facilities

The Learning Hub has space for both quiet and group study. There are three PCs available as well as charging points and Wi-Fi access for students to use their own devices. Students and staff also have access to a multifunctional device (MFD) which can print, copy or scan.

Technical Support

The technical area offers a range of services including submission binding and laminating. There is also a small stock of stationery and art materials for sale.

Digital cameras, flip video cameras, digital voice recorders and other equipment are available for short term loan.
