My university website is designed in such a way that just users with Internet Explorer can use it and if you try to access it through other browsers(like: chrome or firefox) it wont allow;

Is there any way that I can use that websites with other browsers?

You need to change the user-agent of your browser (sent w/ the HTTP headers of your web requests) to a compatible browser.

If you use Firefox, you can get the User Agent Switcher extension.

If you use Chome, you can get the User-Agent Switcher for Chrome.

Alternatively, you can also get a plugin to integrate Internet Explorer in the browser of your choice (such as IE Tab for Firefox, or IE Tab for Chrome).
