Audio/Visual loan equipment

Graduate studies has a range of high quality equipment for loan to graduate students to help with course and subject requirements.

A range of high quality equipment is available for loan to Faculty of Arts graduate students to help with course and subject requirements.

Please note: that we hare a facility for the Faculty of Arts only and are unable to loan to other parts of the University.

Some items are used for specific subject teaching and therefore are reserved exclusively for use by the subject's students and teaching and unavailable for general loan.  All equipment is subject to availability and only on a short-term basis of around two to three days. Occasionally for fieldwork or longer-term projects, this time may be extended at the Loans Officer's discretion.

The equipment is available for use by any currently enrolled research higher degree or graduate coursework student studying in the Faculty of Arts and is offered free of charge.

Please note that depending on the demand and the type of equipment being requested, priority may be given to Research Higher Degree students who are undertaking research in the form of interviews and/or fieldwork.
