Withdrawal of Support for Internet Explorer 11

End of Life Product

Microsoft announced in August 2020 that they will no longer be supporting IE11 from August 17th 2021. Please see the following for more details https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-365-blog/microsoft-365-apps-say-farewell-to-internet-explorer-11-and/ba-p/1591666

From the 17th August 2021 Bud will also no longer support IE11 and some parts of Bud may not work in IE11. As Microsoft will not be supporting IE going forwards that means over time security patches will not be applied and the browser becomes vulnerable, so we highly recommend switching to a new browser ahead of August to get the best experience of Bud possible and the most secure for yourselves.

Alternative Browsers

Here are some alternative browsers that can be used. As some employers restrict browser usage it is recommended that learners check with their employer to comply with their work policies when studying in the workplace:

We recommend that all employers are informed of the latest news from Microsoft, if they aren't already aware, to minimise the impact on a learner's experience and chances of successfully completing on time.
