The minimal suitable configuration is:

It is the responsibility of each student to ensure their computer is functioning correctly and that they have full administrator rights. NCI IT cannot provide support for these personal devices.
A Laptop Loan Scheme is available for eligible students to assist them in completing their chosen course.
