Presidion (SPSS) Academic Portal

The Presidion Academic portal provides training, videos, tutorials, faqs etc to help you get started using SPSS.

To register to access the portal (students and lecturers)

  1. Go to presidion.com/academic-portal
  2. Click on “Not a member? Register”
  3. Fill out the form using your HWU email address - an email will be sent to the email address entered allowing you to verify your account
  4. Click on the link provided to verify the email and you will be sent your registration details

You are automatically (regardless of whether you registered as a student or a lecturer) granted student access

For students, the registration process ends here.


If you are a lecturer, you need to provide proof that you are a lecturer before being granted lecturer access.

This can be anything from a link to the HWU website with your information displayed on it, to an email from your Head of Department confirming that you are indeed a lecturer.

Once Presidion receive this information they will change your user status to lecturer (but in the meantime you can log in with student access).


There is a feedback area in the portal so that you can let Presidion know what you think of the service, suggest improvements etc.

We would also be interested to hear any comments that you have about the portal – let us know by emailing ishelp@hw.ac.uk.
