    Is this a dropin kiosk or do we need to book in advance? Is there a PC to work on whilst the tutorial video is running?

  2. It is a dropin – no need to book (we may revise this policy depending on how popular the facility is). There is no PC to work on – but you can bring a laptop as there is wifi in the area. You need a headset – you can borrow one from the Customer Service Desk if necessary. Let me know how you get on if you try it. Best wishes. Moira Stephen, Liaison Services Manager
