Adobe are offering all students 73% off their creative cloud products.

£12.38/mo or £148.56/yr incl. VAT which is a bargain in my opinion.

* Access 29 desktop apps and 10 mobile apps — including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Premiere Pro — plus 10 services including Adobe Stock, Typekit and Behance.

* Access Adobe's entire collection of creative apps for Mac, PC, smartphone and tablet.

* Sync, share and create on the go thanks to Adobe CreativeSync, which powers your Creative Cloud Libraries and lets you access your favorite creative assets anywhere.

* Get new features and updates as part of your membership as soon as they're released. You decide when to install them.

If only there were an easy way to prove you were a student
I thought it went up to FULL full price after the year, ie £45+. Happy to be corrected, though.
Just signed my daughter up. Year 6 . should keep her busy.
How is £145 a year a bargain? No wonder people use TPB and KAT.


Shame the missus still uses a G5 Mac, oh well it saves on installing a new CS every so often pmsl

Good price compared to full price tho
Think I will stick with CS6
Just checked and it goes up to £21.91 after the first year, which is full student price.

Absolutely, me too. It's a fantastic suite and right now I see no reason to change this

No, student price is a lot cheaper
I really find it terrible how Adobe exploit their position and exploit students. Microsoft and others provide genuinely substantial discounts, or even free product for students. If you want to screw your professional customers for £600 per year then fine, but they could give parents a better deal.
As a teacher we get the full master suite for free as well as access to all microsoft products for £7 each.

​I think its a fair price for what youre getting. I mean if youre making a living of using these apps, its absolutely worth it.

I've had a student license for the last two years registered under different names. While they are genuine subs used by students albeit shared between three kids) I've never been asked to prove their status.

And this has come along at the right time as license is about to expire (black.Friday purchase last year)

I'd certainly prefer to buy outright and not lease, but that's the model now. MS are doing the same too.
I paid about £13 a month for first year and now £21 a month.

So cancel that and take this. I'm about to do the same.
Just checked my account. My payment is £12.38 per month from last year and billing date is the 28th. I expect they won't allow.me to pay an annual sub and keep this account live, so will need to give a third student name.
subscription model is a sign Adobe is running out of ideas, they don't need to create new features to get you to buy the new version of Photoshop they can just sell you the old one year after year. Would rather pirate than pay monthly.

The text on their site suggests you need an educational establishment email address. I guess this isn't the case then?

Correct. It isn't. I guess they could write at some stage to request it, but 2 years on they never have.

Just tried to register, there is indeed a field asking for your instituitional email address. But you don't need to fill it out, it won't prevent you from going to the next step.

Guess they can't be bothered/they see it as an unnecessary cost to check. Presumably they think people will be led to thinking the same way I did - i.e. that you need to be able to prove so no point bothering.

I think you are right. I almost didn't bothered, but did get a letter from his school saying he was a student just in case.
