As a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, your course may now have to be initially delivered partly online. To get the most from your studies, you will need your own personal computer or laptop and an internet connection in your home. This needs to be in place at the start of the course. When you join St George’s you will have the ability to use Office 365 as part of our institutional license, and to access St George’s software via AppsAnywhere. In addition, we offer Office for Mac via office365, but only the following applications are available for Mac: Teams, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, OneNote. Web-based Office applications are available on Mac. 

Hardware requirements

We recommend students are equipped with a device with the following minimum specification:

  • Intel i3
  • 2.2Ghz, 4Gb RAM
  • 256GB SSD
  • 1080p screen

Recommended specification

We recommend the following specification if you are planning on upgrading your device:

  • Intel i5
  • 2.2Ghz, 8Gb RAM
  • 256GB SSD
  • 1080p screen

Support for those unable to meet these requirements 

We understand that it will not be possible for all students to meet our technology requirements and so will be loaning laptops to the following priority groups:

  • Students who eligible to receive a grant from the St George’s Opportunity Fund 
  • Students who are registered disabled, care leavers and/or have caring responsibilities
  • International students who may have difficulty sourcing an appropriate device on arrival in the UK

Students who meet the criteria above should email to discuss obtaining a loan laptop.

If you do not fit into one of these groups but think you will struggle to meet this requirement, please email to discuss potential support options available.
