Software for download

The following software packages are available to students of the University under university licensing for the duration of your study at Stirling.  Some are web based and some require installation of software on your own device.   Some are only supported on an installation basis (we'll help you get them installed) and some are fully supported (we'll also help you with any problems with the software).

With regard to using software packages, it is well worth checking out (linked from the portal home page) as it has hundreds of training courses on the software we provide.
