Welcome to MENU, the virtual learning environment for Medical Education Programmes at Newcastle University.

Our Mission Statement

At the School of Medical Education we are committed to the promotion of education as a practical skill and as an academic discipline. Our accredited programmes are designed for health care professionals, and enable participants to: -

  • Plan and deliver teaching in a variety of settings.
  • Understand and use educational theories to improve teaching.
  • Develop awareness of the broader social and political contexts in which education takes place.
  • Evaluate, plan and execute educational research.

Our overarching aim is to contribute to the development of health care educators, and ultimately through that contribute to patient care.

This Learning Support Environment (LSE) is your first interface with our programmes. Although you will not be able to log-on to the programme resources until registered as a student, please review information about the programmes by selecting one of the blue buttons, 'More Information', below. It is here that you will find out more about the programmes on offer as well as information about specific modules and how to apply and register. Across the top of the page, next to 'Home', there is an area called 'Contact' which will give you access to the contact details of people who can help with any further queries.

 For students who are registered on a face-to-face programme (the e-learning Certificate uses a different Learning Support Environment, https://blackboard.ncl.ac.uk) press the 'Login' key at the top right-hand side of your screen to gain access to your personal Home Page. Here you will find your timetable and a list of all your registered modules, with links to the module areas.
