Are you study ready?
If you’re finding it challenging to access your lectures, we’ve made it easier for you to borrow, or get support to buy, a Chromebook.
Following feedback from many of you and our students, Information Technology Services, Student Services, and the Students’ Union are pleased to announce Are you study ready?: a new initiative that makes it easier for you to get the device you need to engage in online learning.
The initiative has streamlined the processes involved in both borrowing a device, such as a Chromebook, and in applying for the Hardship Fund to help you buy one. In short, the whole experience is simple, supportive, and you will never be left without a device.
Please remember that in order to access the online systems at London Met, you do not need a particular device. Any desktop PC, laptop, Mac, tablet or even phone will allow you to access University systems. This means that you can use any device you currently own.
For any queries on the Hardship Fund, please contact the Student Money and Accommodation Advice team.
For queries on Chromebook loans, please speak to your course leader.
We have a range of additional supports in place to support your online learning and helping you to be study ready;
- Access to a range of software via our RemoteLab
- Access to a range of support to help you navigate our systems via our Digital Care package
- Access to IT support if you have queries about your WiFi or connectivity issues
- Access to our Get, tech Go resources which will demonstrate how to get the best out of your inbuilt accessibility tools.
Please note that we will no longer be providing 4G dongles as these do no more than you using your mobile phone to connect. If you are having internet connectivity issues and cannot afford to upgrade to a better broadband provider, you can request to use the Hardship Fund to help with the cost.
