Welcome to the Mathematical, Physical & Life Sciences (MPLS) Division’s homepage on WebLearn.

WebLearn is the University’s web-based Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and is within the MPLS Division to both support and enhance teaching and learning.
All MPLS departments have a publicly available site, and links to these can be found on the ‘sub sections’ bar on the left hand side of this page. Our departments are:

Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Engineering Science, Materials, Mathematical Institute, Physics, Plant Sciences, Statistics and Zoology.

Departmental Sites

Many of our departments have WebLearn sites for their students, and these will usually be restricted to specific individuals i.e. a given course cohort. You will either find links to these sites from their publicly available WebLearn site, or you can select the relevant site from the ‘My Active Sites’ tab, which is in the top right hand corner of this window.

Cannot find your department? You must have a University Single Sign On log in to access restricted sites, please make sure you log in to get the full benefits of your WebLearn access. (To log in click on Oxford Account in the top right corner and log in via the Oxford Single Sign-on (SSO) screen.) If you still cannot find what you are looking for then you should contact your course tutor or college or departmental IT Support officer.
