I am a Student - How do I activate my account?

Tech Sector


All students are required to activate their accounts every 13 months. The process is straightforward and can be done through any web browser on any internet-connected device (including smartphones/tablets) from anywhere in the world.

How this is done depends on whether you are a new or returning student.
