Over 1000 Data SIMs have been given to the College by Vodafone as part of their work with the Mail Force charity to help hundreds of thousands of students across the UK to access the internet.
It is just one of several digital initiatives implemented by the college to help students throughout the pandemic, after they also developed remote desktop technology to help construction students access high spec software from home.
Kimmy Coburn a student at the college who received a free SIM card said: "I applied for one after my tutor recommended it to me.
"It's been really, really useful, especially as a lot of my course has been moved online due to coronavirus restrictions.
"It's provided a good connection pretty much everywhere and has made a big difference to me."
