Due to a technical issue, some student leaver accounts in Microsoft 365 were not correctly expiring. This means that students could continue to login to some Microsoft 365 services after they had left the University.
A fix to this issue has recently been implemented which means that if you are a student leaver in 2020 but were still able to login to your Microsoft 365 account you now won’t be able to. This is expected and normal, as you will have received an email when you left the University advising you that your account would be closed.
We apologise for the confusion this may cause you if you are a student who has been able to incorrectly login up to this point.

When attempting to login to the intranet or the Contensis CMS using Internet Explorer, you’ll receive an error message saying “There is an error determining which application you are signing into. Return to the application and try again”.
The solution for this is to use a more recent browser such as Edge, Chrome, Firefox or Opera.
Internet Explorer is no longer supported for using either the intranet or Contensis.

Apple released the latest edition of macOS (Big Sur) on 12th November 2020.
We have tested the following on Big Sur and found them to work correctly:
- VPN/Remote Access Client
- McAfee Endpoint Protection (Version 10.7.5 or higher)
- Microsoft Office 365 & Microsoft Teams
- SPSS (Version 27 is available from mySoftware)
- YSoft SafeQ (Managed Print) – The latest version of the client has been made available on the mySoftware site which is compatible
The following have yet to be tested, or their websites do not yet have a compatible version for download:
- nVivo – There are some known issues, see their support site for details
- Endnote – Not yet officially supported, but anecdotal evidence suggest 9.3.3 will function correctly, which can be downloaded via in-app update
For information on other applications, please see the vendors support pages for macOS 11 compatibility before you upgrade your machine.
