While you are an LSBU student you get access to selected licensed software. These software packages can be downloaded to your own suitable devices for the duration of your studies.
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.
