    You're gonna need to run it through a Virtual Machine in Windows... Apple already has one for the Mac called Bootcamp which can be found in the the utility folder...
    Check out the link below

    What model is your Mac? How old is it?

    Bootcamp (already built into your Mac) or Parallels (you need to buy it)

    Plus a copy of Windows OS.

    You might be able to get Windows free or v cheap via your university Microsoft license agreement. Check with your uni.

    You can get an unlicensed (watermarked) version of Windows 10 from Microsoft. Works exactly the same as the licensed version with the exception of "Activate Windows" watermark on the bottom right...
