Some Assessments and Formal Examinations at UniSQ may be invigilated.  Where courses have online invigilated assessment, there are specific requirements for your hardware and software, including the installation of the Guardian Browser.

Don’t have access to a computer?

If the financial cost of purchasing a computer or updating your hardware and software is a problem we have computer laboratories at each campus.  Microsoft Windows will be in all computer labs and lecture rooms.  Mac computers are also available at Toowoomba and Springfield campus.  Please check for specialised computing requirements for your courses prior to the start of semester.

Before installing software onto your computer please ensure that it has been obtained legally. Please refer to the Acceptable use of IT Resources Policy for further information.
