In order to facilitate studies from home, there is software that you have the right to install on your personal computer. Certain software is available for all students while contracts limit the use to certain courses/programmes.
Software that is used at the University of Borås requires verification with a user ID and password. If no login field shows up, it might be due to settings in Internet Explorer. Open Internet Options under the tool menu and choose ‘Advanced.’ At the bottom of the settings, activate SSL 2.0 or deactivate TLS 1.0.
