Students on game design or computing courses may be interested in installing Visual Studio Community on their own personal Windows or Mac devices.

Visual Studio Community can be used in tandem with other development software such as Unity or Python.

If your personal device is a Windows PC or laptop, go to the Visual Studio 2019 page and choose “Community 2019” from the “Download Visual Studio” dropdown menu. Once the installer has downloaded, run it to install Visual Studio and any add-ons you need.

If your personal device is an Apple iMac or MacBook, go to the Visual Studio 2019 for Mac page and click the “Download Visual Studio for Mac” button. Once the software has downloaded, open the .dmg and run the installer to install Visual Studio for Mac.
