IMPORTANT NOTE: IBM SPSS is available on all University owned computers including those in HUB and Central Library which have 24/7 access. It is important to ensure that this additional "at home" provision of the Software, is requested for the purpose of supporting research and that it is aimed at times of anticipated peak usage. Students that are, for example, early in their research candidatures and seeking only to explore the software briefly, should do so using computers at the university (library, computer labs, postgraduate rooms, etc.).

I CONFIRM that the details given above are accurate and that this postgraduate student requires IBM SPSS STATISTICS to progress with their research project.



Important Note: Software Licensing team will provide you with details regarding accessing of the installation files. They will also email this form back to you with an Authorisation Code.
