IT Services


Software

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

Software Centre

Install software without needing to contact the IT Support Centre. Available exclusively on University managed computers.

Applications website

The Applications website contains information about the software that is available to you from the University. If you're using Wi-Fi or you're not on campus, you need to use the VPN.

Electronic Software Delivery System (ESD)

If you can't download the software you want from the Software Centre, use the ESD to download free and paid-for (with University account code) software. If you're using Wi-Fi or you're not on campus, you need to use the VPN.

Software on the ESD is supplied as a disk image. These are electronic copies of CDs and DVDs which your computer can install. Find out more:

Microsoft Office for taught students

Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught students can download Microsoft Office for free.
