Additional Student Support

Based on level 5 of Appleton Tower, normally in room 5.02, InfBase is a student helpdesk staffed by Informatics course tutors and graduate students. InfBase staff are selected on the basis of expertise and coverage, offering support and advice on all Informatics taught courses, particularly non-honours courses and the Maths for Informatics courses taught in 1st and 2nd year. InfBase can be used as a place to work together, with other students with support with an InfBase staff member.

How Does InfBase Work?

InfBase supports student learning by providing a way of getting answers to questions when you need them. For 1st and 2nd years InfBase will be able to answer most things you throw at it. For later years and the MSc, InfBase will both answer some questions and provide a sounding board to help you refine your questions so you get better and more useful answers from lecturers and tutors.
