The University of East London is giving free Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablets, pre-loaded with textbooks and links to university resources to around 4,000 first year students. The university's Progress Bursary programme is investing around GBP 2 million in the initiative. Vice-chancellor John Joughin said, "Our support for equality of opportunity is one of UEL's defining values, and providing our entire first-year intake with Samsung tablets, pre-loaded with core textbooks and links to virtual learning resources, ensures there is a level playing field for all of our students."
