Digital aids for studies
The Swedish Defence University has licences for a number of programmes that facilitate reading and written work on computers. The programmes are available to anyone studying at the Swedish Defence University.
You have access to the programmes throughout your study time and it is possible to download them on your computer. When you have completed your studies, you have to uninstall the programmes.
As the Swedish Defence University pays a licence fee for support programmes, they are only available for those who are registered as a student at the Swedish Defence University. Download digital aids (log in required)
