Laptops and Tablets

If you have your own laptop computer or tablet (e.g., Microsoft Surface), you should bring it providing it comes equipped with an AC adapter that permits AC input of 240 Volts.  You are strongly advised to fill out a customs form for your laptop (and any other expensive electronic equipment) to ensure problem-free re-importation.

It would also be useful to bring along any documentation and original software associated with your laptop. You might wish to purchase an international warranty should anything go wrong with your computer while you’re in the UK. IT Services is available on-site to assist with the set-up of your laptop for use at the BISC. You will need them to test the voltage of your laptop when you arrive during orientation week before you can use it at BISC.

Leasing Service

It is possible to lease a laptop from the BISC.  Leased computers are available for one or two semesters and are fully supported by the BISC computer support team.

Additional information about leasing options will be emailed to you after you have accepted your offer of admission.
