The lowdown on available software

There are a bunch of essential things you’re gonna need for uni. Access to the technology you need, study skills, the ability to turn off Netflix and actually do your assignment (we believe in you!!!), etc.

Now, while we can’t force you to sit in front a computer and actually do your work, we can provide you with the software you need to do your work.

We’ve got a bunch of computers around campus, just waiting for you to plonk yourself in front of and start smashing out some assignments.

While they’re all loaded up with the standard software – MS Office, Adobe, and various internet browsers – further applications vary between locations.

You can find a comprehensive list of current computer lab software applications here.

Some areas of study do have specialist software, and in this case your school will provide access to this. For access to specialised labs, contact your school.

If you’re more of the study-from-home type, you can download a great range of software for home use.

You can download the following software for home use through the Software Download Service:

  • EndNote
  • Leximancer
  • NVivo
  • SAS
  • Symantec Endpoint Protection

There are also a number of vendors who offer software to students at no cost or at discounted costing (find more information at the vendor discounted software webpage). This software includes:

  • Adobe Creative Cloud for Education
  • Autodesk Education
  • EViews Student Edition
  • Microsoft Imagine (formerly Dreamspark)
  • SPSS and AMOS for Students (note – an annual fee applies)

And, if you’ve been living under a rock (read: haven’t visited us at a market day stall or followed our social media), don’t forget you can download Microsoft Office 365 for University for free.

You can find further information on the Available Software webpage.
