The Notifications area currently has five types of Notifications:

  • UWE E-mail link and notification of unread important e-mail from UWE (students only)
  • Personal Tutor Meeting notes reminders (students only)
  • Modules & Marks new marks (students only)

UWE E-mail (students only)

If you have important unread messages in your UWE e-mail inbox, you will see a notification telling you that “You have new important e-mail from UWE’. If you have no unread important e-mails from UWE, the notifications area will display a link to your UWE e-mail.

Personal Tutor Meeting Notes

If you have received Meeting Notes from your Personal Tutor which you have not yet approved, you will see a reminder under Notifications. As soon as you have approved an outstanding meeting note, the reminder will be removed. For advice on approving meeting notes, please see our Personal Tutors guidance.
