Sign in: Staff/Students
While we try to make sure our services and applications are available across a range of different types of devices, this year as a larger proportion of your learning will be carried out online, it is important that learning activities or use of software are accessed via a computer – i.e. a PC, laptop, or Mac – rather than a tablet or mobile phone.
To get the most from hybrid learning your device will need to be able to:
As you are likely to spend longer periods working on your computer, you should also make sure it is comfortable to use. Consider the size and layout of your screen, keyboard and mouse and ensure you have access to speakers, microphone and webcam.
If you don’t have access to a suitable device, we do have a limited number of PCs available on campus – use the PC Finder app to locate a free space. You can also locate PC centres across campus here.
Find out more about how Computing Services can support you in your learning, including advice for new students and access to new software, here. If you are a new student, we also recommend working your way through our IT Quickstart guide.
We understand that some students may require additional support accessing a suitable device to carry out hybrid learning this year. The recently launched Laptop Loan Scheme will allow students to loan a device from the University, however as numbers are limited we ask that any interested students apply as soon as possible. Applications are open to all students, both UK and international, with a closing deadline of Friday, 30 October.
All applications will be assessed based on actual income and expenditure. Further details and application forms can be found on the Student Support webpages.
