Information for Current Students
MUSE (My University of Sheffield Environment) gives you secure access to online university resources from anywhere in the world. This includes access to your personal e-mail account and filestore.
You can use MUSE to access:
1. MOLE (My Online Learning Environment). Here you will find lecture handouts, online discussions which are often an integral part of your courses, podcasts and other resources relating to your modules.
You can access MOLE via MUSE, or directly via the link http://vle.shef.ac.uk/
For Help and Support with MOLE contact email@example.com in the first instance.
2. Email. All students will get an @sheffield.ac.uk address, please remember to check your emails frequently as all important information regarding your studies will be sent via email.
Additionally Postgraduate Researches may request a fully fledged email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org instead of the generic egp12jb@ or jbloggs1@.
3. Your Grades. Current Students can view transcripts of grades within the "SSiD" tab within MUSE. For more information go to SSiD's website.
4. Up-to-date information about teaching, assessment and support in the School of English via The School of English Organisation in MOLE2. This allows us to provide up to date information to you in a flexible and interactive way.
We have active Staff-Student Committees, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, which have student representatives from all the different programmes in the school. For minutes of recent meetings, finding your course representative, and how you can get involved, check the "Student Staff Committee" section in the the School of English Organisation in MOLE2, or the noticeboard on Level 5 of Jessop West (Postgraduate Committee).
The University's wide range of electronic resources, including databases, e-books and e-journals are available to all registered students through MUSE.
