The resources in iTunes U are free and can be downloaded without logging in with an iTunes account, so no purchase from Apple is necessary to access these materials.

We are proud to be the first (and only) university in Wales to host content on iTunes U — the largest body of free, online, educational resources in the world.

Through iTunes U you can watch or download content from world-ranking universities, museums and cultural institutions to play on your PC/Mac computer or iOS device at your leisure.

In our own collections and courses, you will find educational content across a wide range of subjects plus information about the university and its faculties, and life as a student. In our Student Showcase you can also see some exciting examples of work from our students.

Our groundbreaking interactive books, available free on the iBooks Store, have been much praised, and are used by many other universities.

NEWS! Double success for our resources in the CADARN Learning Portal Educational Media Awards
