You can access software you will need for your studies in a variety of ways, both on your personal device or using the devices on campus.
The best routes for you depends on the age of your device, how much storage the software takes, how often you need to use that software and whether you are on Windows or Mac Operating Systems.
The main software can be remotely accessed via our Student Virtual Desktop.
Once you download that virtual desktop you do not then need to download each item.
Downloading of Software
Software you use often can be downloaded and run on your personal device from downloading from our options here or via Apps Anywhere, where you can view the full range.
Streaming of software
A large range of software can be streamed to your personal device via AppsAnywhere. This is a good option for many students who do not use the software often or who do not have a powerful laptop.
