Website resources

The School website and associated Centre and Institute websites are maintained by the Faculty Communications and Marketing team.

Under 'Request type', please ensure you select 'Humanities Website Content Change'.

If you do have access to the T4 content management system (CMS) but cannot remember how to use it, please view our training videos.

All text added to our sites must meet the University's written word guidelines.
