Students joining us at University of Warwick have a mixed range of IT abilities. That range is probably wider within CLL than in other departments. If you have limited experience of using a computer you will be please to know there are a variety of courses you can attend on campus once you have started. If you are keen to learn more you can contact your local college or library to find out what free short courses are available in basic IT.
Once you become an enrolled student of the University of Warwick you will have access to a vast array of software, including Office 365 and anti-virus and security. Here is a link to the list of software available http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/its/servicessupport/software/list .
Forwarding your Warwick email to your personal email can help you to keep up to date with what is happening at University. Here is a link to one of the many IT help desk leaflets, this one showing how to send from one email account to another. http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/its/servicessupport/servicedesk/leaflets/leaflet_8b-email_office_365_rules.pdf . IT services have produced a wealth of hints and tips leaflets, which you can look at online http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/its/servicessupport/servicedesk/leaflets or pick up from stands around campus. There is an information point in Westwood café as well as the main library.
