I saw this ages ago, but how do you 'create an account'?
I always come across this:

Emailed my unis IT support and they didn't have a clue.

Universities have to sign up for Dreamspark Premium and it costs them money. Not all Uni's do.

Dreamspark is nothing new, this has been available to students and universities for a long time

Unfortunately I am no longer a student but have a uni email :(

The University has to be a part of the scheme. I think my uni I work for pays about £300 a year for each faculty.

Got an account but can't find windows 8. Where am I supposed to look? Where is the search bar?
i.am.lost#11
I'm confused - Win8 is only listed when I search for my university. My existing DreamSpark account doesn't work with that webstore, and it tells me an admin needs to have already set up an account for me. What do I do, should I contact my uni's computing service? Surely they won't manually create accounts for every student who wants it...

I think you misread, my uni is on there but its only to download dreamspark not windows 8?

as theres an option for windows 8- dreamspark premium

I've contacted my university helpdesk for more information. It is a very confusing process.

It may be that only certain subjects qualify, the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

At my college one of the IT lecturers takes on that responsibility. Ask your head of department about getting signed up to it. We just gave the lecturer our personal email address and Academic Alliance got in touch soon after.

Had w8 pro installed for about a month now.

Right, so I can get this via my uni, but I have no idea which one to chose.

EDIT: Also need to register, but I need some username.
