The university recommends that all students have access to their own technology to access their programme in 2020/21, including the right hardware (e.g., a laptop), software, and connectivity (e.g., broadband).
- Minimum specifications for basic processing (enabling the use of university web-based systems and general-purpose applications, such as Office 365): Intel Core i3, 8GB RAM, SSD storage, Full HD display or equivalent, Windows 10.
- Recommended specifications for students intending to run a variety of software applications: Intel Core i5, 16GB RAM, SSD storage, Full HD display or equivalent, Windows 10.
- Specialist specifications: if your programme requires the use of applications which are compute- or graphics-intensive (e.g., CAD, Gaming and Film/Design), you may need a higher specification computer. In this case, please contact your programme team for advice.
The university provides a remote desktop access service to PCs on campus. This enables students to access the majority of university software from their own device without travelling to campus.
If you have any questions, make sure to talk to your programme team.
