To work on practical exercises during the course you will need a laptop computer; a low-powered 'netbook' (such as a Chrome Book) or a tablet will not usually be suitable. In addition, you will need to provide your own mouse and keyboard (where necessary), and a mains power adapter. Your laptop must be able to connect to Wi-Fi; you will not be able to use a wired network connection. Eduroam is available in the teaching rooms.
Terms and Conditions - BYOD
The small print that applies when you want to bring your own device (e.g. laptop) to one of our courses or workshops
Computers and software are provided for IT Learning Centre (ITLC) courses unless stated otherwise. However, we recognise that you may prefer to bring your own computer. This is often referred to as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). In the context of an ITLC course, a device is usually a laptop computer, but could, in some circumstances, be a tablet, netbook or suitable smartphone.
If you want to bring your own device, first check the specific course description to see if it is 'BYOD friendly' and then read and comply with the guidance below.
