Internet resources for Education

The internet can be one of the most valuable tools in your quest for information during your time at university. However, with so much information out there, it can be very hard to find the best information, or to know that you've found it when you've got it!

Use the ideas on this page to start making smart use of online information to support your studies.

Featured website

DERA - Digital Education Resource Archive aims to preserve documents from the government and other important bodies in education and related fields. Often, digital documents get lost if links are removed from websites - DERA exists to try to preserve these for researchers and practitioners. It contains guidance documents, reports, statistics and all sorts of other material. Well worth a look!
