In the Accountancy, Finance & Control and Finance, Tax and Advice programmes, the requirements for a laptop are a Windows operating system. No Apple.

In our education we use digital learning tools and systems. For example, you will learn to deal with accounting systems. These digital accounting systems are not compatible with Apple computers. We therefore recommend that you do not opt for an Apple PC.
