Advice from a student

Make sure you have reliable and up-to-date computer, a printer, a reliable modem, and lots of stationery.  We live in an area that does not currently have access to the ultrafast fibre broadband, so still using the old copper network.  It took me a good month to realise my modem was old and not working effectively, and with 5 people in the house all using devices it was soooo slow.  A lot of angst and wasted time (and more grey hairs) trying to access Moodle in the evenings.  I convinced Spark to send me a high end premium business modem for a fraction of the price...what a difference!
