Welcome to HN Global


Starting out

With HN Global, students can search, share, comment, rank and sort millions of learning resources via an online digital library of hundreds of thousands of eBooks, academic journals, magazines, reports, conference materials, and much more; tutors can create and annotate reading lists for their students; you can also keep up-to-date on the latest news around the redevelopment and enhancement of the HN programmes.

Enrolling in units

The first time you log into HN Global you will be prompted to choose units to enrol in.
The units displayed will be all available units for your programme of study, potentially including units not offered at your centre. 
Enrolling in a unit is a way of bookmarking that unit so that you can see resources associated with it - you can enrol in any units you choose from your programme of study, including those that you may not be studying currently if they interest you. This will not affect what you are enrolled in at your centre.
To enrol in a unit, click once on the plus sign (+) on the left of the unit name.
Once enrolled, your units will show at the top of the ‘My units’ page, as well as the home page.
If you want to change your enrolled units, return to the ‘Edit my units' page, and use the plus (+) and minus (-) icons to change your selections.
