IT Services


If you require software to help you with your work or study, there are two websites which work together to give you access to various applications.

Applications website

The Applications website contains information about the software that is available to you from the University.

Electronic Software Delivery System (ESD)

ESD is a web based software delivery service. From the ESD website you can download site licensed software that you are entitled to, free of charge. University staff can also download chargable software with a valid account code.

The ESD system is available to on campus computers, and off campus computers that are connected to the Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Installing software

The majority of software applications are supplied as disk images. These are electronic copies of CDs and DVDs which your computer can install. For further guidance, please see the following user guide:
