If your course requires specialist software, we’ll provide you with access to this and a licence that lasts throughout your studies.
We offer a free Software Download Service. It features useful software for all our registered students. Some software, eg MiniTab, may be Windows-only, not for Mac.
We’ll give you access to Office365 applications, both online and on up to five personal devices.
This means you can use online versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for free.
Some of the resources on your course will be provided in PDF format, so you’ll need access to a PDF reader like Adobe Acrobat Reader.
As a University of Aberdeen student, you can download and use the full Adobe Acrobat software. This allows you to create, edit and view PDF documents. Once you register with us, we can make Adobe Acrobat available to you via our Software Download Service.
We recommend downloading virus protection software.
