The university utilises many different types of technology to improve the learning experience for all students.
Student IT is your first port of call if you are experiencing any technical issues with your personal or student computer. We can also assist by teaching you how to use or troubleshoot a particular piece of software. No matter the problem, we will do our best to solve it, or direct you onto someone who can.

Can I get other software?Students are not limited to the generic software supplied with the Student Desktop. In fact, there are two other types of software available to you.
- Freely available software on request. Click here for a list of available software, and information on how to request it.
- Software which is available to you because you are doing a course that requires it. Your course coordinator will inform you of any software that you will be using at the start of semester. This software will be located in: Start Menu > All Programs > Course Specific Software on the Student Desktop.
Library services are available to all students both on and off campus. The Library website for distance students is a comprehensive source of information if you are looking for research articles, text books, and help with referencing.
