You are more than welcome to download additional software on your laptop. What you need to do is ensure that what you are downloading is not illegal or inappropriate and is also suitable for you to be downloading. 

Generally anything in the App Store is fine, as it has already gone through Apple's approval system. You need to be more wary when you are downloading programs from webpages etc. The programs we provide for you in Self Service
are also fine.

You are not meant to download games to your laptop, as you are not allowed to be using these during school times. However, you are allowed to install them onto a thumb drive, provided you are accessing these through legal means. 

Note: If you download external applications, 1Degree and the Tech Centre will not be able to provide support for these.

If you are still unsure, you can email or visit 1Degree or the Tech Centre and ask about any problems you may have.
