From September 2022, students are invited to use a tablet/laptop as part of their studies at College. You should think of this as another tool in your pencil case which will complement handwritten work and provide access to countless digital resources to support your studies.
If you already have a suitable device at home, we encourage you to bring it into College with you.

Your device battery needs to last at least six hours. If your device charges using USB C or lightning, we will provide chargers in College. If your device requires a different power adapter, you may be asked to have your charger PAT tested in College.

Please bring wired or wireless headphones/earbuds with you every day to College. It is also recommended you have a webcam/microphone built in to your device (almost all devices do).
