UK Apple Store
UWE primarily uses Windows-based computers (PCs) and not Macs. The Faculty of Arts, Creative Industries and Education and the Department of Computer Science and Creative Technologies are the main users of Macs.
Consequently, these departments are best placed to advise you on the purchasing of Macs in these areas of study. Support information on Apple Macs can also be found on the Apple UK Store Support Support web site.
The Apple UK Store also has purchasing offers for UWE students. To access this web site, students need to be on the UWE network.
However, please be aware that the University does not support Apple equipment and its connection to the UWE equipment.
