MS Office 365 free to University students

Found 21st Aug 2015
With a lot of people starting at uni in the next few weeks I thought it would be worth pointing out that a lot of establishments provide a free download of Office 365 to their students. Worth checking before buying a copy!

If yours doesn't the next cheapest way is to get Microsoft Office 365 University Edition.

Not free, you should be able to get DreamSpark stuff but not Office, you could qualify for any deal they do for students, I think I paid £40 for my copy of Office under the ultimate steal program.

Should have added the Ultimate Steal program is no longer running, but Microsoft offer deals from time to time.

I currently have office professional plus installed, is this better?

Not many people know this as it is underused by schools but every single pupil in Wales (under 16) has free access to Office 365! It is done via the HWB (Hub in English). Ask your school for login details.

Manchester Met Offer Office Pro Plus and Sophos anti virus. Thanks OP saved my son £50 plus there as we are just buying a laptop today.

Doesn't work. Do you have another login?

Birmingham city university offers as well

Thanks for this. I'm entering year 2 of my degree and it turns out my Uni does in fact offer free Office 365 (University of South Wales). Wish someone had told me before I bought that HP tablet with the free years Office haha

most of the universities are offering email for life provided by Microsoft. A couple of months ago Microsoft has decided to move Office365 down to the basic package and that is the reason why a lot of students can get Office365 for free.

It's not something you can claim, the establishment provide it to their students. Try googling the name of where you are going followed by 'office 365 download'
e.g. portsmouth university office 365 download

my university login still works after 4 years and I can still install office on up to 5 devices

Bangor Uni does the offer too

mhhbizz

Nottingham Trent University also does the same.

Royal Veterinary College, RVC offers free office (office 365) for students.

Guys. just use OpenOffice or libre office as these are two alternatives that are a load better than Microsoft. As for SQL, look at mongo db as this is starting to surpass Microsoft's SQL server. The days of Microsoft holding a monopoly on programs is over.
