If I give you my email address, will I get spammed?

At SUPA we look after your privacy. We promise not to tell (or sell) anyone else your email address. Please see our Privacy Policy for more details.

Why doesn't the brochure say where the lectures will be held?

Unless otherwise stated, SUPA lectures take place in the SUPA video conferencing rooms. If you are enrolled for a course, the video conferencing room at your establishment will be booked for you. Arrangements will be made for the rooms to be opened and set up at the correct times.

Lectures usually take place in the SUPA video-conferencing rooms. Not all lectures take place in all rooms.
