Escape Studios appreciates that not everyone has access to the hardware and software they need to study online. Whilst our tutors are experts and great teachers, our courses are 100% practical, so you’ll need some sort of access.
While the best experience will be through having the software locally on your own machine, that’s not always possible, so we’ve developed different tiers of support to help you if you don’t have access to the necessary software:
1. We’ll be able to tell you if there are free versions of the software you need available through vendors. Many developers create free student versions or learning editions, which will be sufficient to practice with.
2. If this isn’t possible, we may be able to supply licences for the length of your course. This would allow you to download software onto your machine for the duration of the course.
3. Lastly, in some cases we may be able to give you remote access to workstations, so you can use them at certain times. Service can be affected by factors to do with your local ISP or bandwidth elsewhere, so this needs to be negotiated beforehand.
However, having your own software is always going to be the best bet!
