You will need the laptop in class and when writing assignments.
If you need to buy a new laptop, we recommend that you do this after your programme starts. That way you can make sure that your new computer has the capacity to run study-related software.
We recommend that you buy a laptop with a long battery life. Please note that the technical programmes may have additional hardware demands.
The computers located in our classrooms typically run Windows 7 and Windows 8.
