To check eligibility, all students need is a valid email address from a participating school to complete the sign-up process. Afterwards, in addition to gaining access to the Office suite of products, students will also score 1TB of OneDrive storage and access to Office Online from a browser.

US only? does not work with my .ac.uk e-mail.

^ No, it worked with my ac.uk email. I think you have to be from a "participating school" though.

Yeah, to get this, your uni/college has to have signed up to Microsoft's site-wide licencing scheme. A good deal if they have, though.

My university (South Wales) currently saying to try back in a couple of days time...
I'm not optimistic we'll be included, but great deal for anybody who is eligible!

Seems the OU is not registered.

I just had a look, my details seem to have gone through, but I just paid £40 for the complete Office 365 University Edition! Doh! Well at least it is valid for four years! Maybe I can download this one to someone else's PC? For those who have registered, what is the license length on this?

Same as poster above i shelled out for the Office 365 University Edition... But this will come in handy somewhere. Is the licence a year?

Just been doing this! I tried using the website for uploading but it takes forever. On window 8.1/8 you should have the OneDrive app already on your computer and using the app is wayyyyy faster!

Of course, never use web upload.

I'm a network manager in a school. We buy into Microsoft EES licensing program for the whole school. We have a .sch.uk email domain! Does this mean were eligible?

I got an email from my kids school saying that they were able to each install on up to 5 devices. So we've got 10 available! Installed with no problem on 3 already.

Open University not eligible unfortunately.

ok i apologise but come on if you are a network manager at a school who has bought or is responsible for buying the microsoft license which must have cost quite a bit i would expect them to at least know what they have purchased its not like he said he is just a worker there.He/she said they are a manager there they should know what is being being bought or do you expect them to just purchase any random license for the school pcs.

you are doing it again

Muddassarsardar, so just because he is a network manager, you expect him to immediately know all the answers to everything about IT? If you had bothered to do the slightest bit of research before assuming everyone is a know it all you would know that training for IT personnel in schools nationwide is very limited indeed. So please don't chat crap when you don't know what the situation is.

As to your question bilboalex1, I too am a Network Manager at a school and I have done extensive investigation on this "deal". So long as you have a valid OES-ES (Formally EES) agreement, you are eligible for free Office 365 for your staff and students. However, currently, the only way to give this to staff & students is if you have an Office 365 for Education tenancy at your school. If you don't, there is nothing really stopping you from signing the school up at it is completely free for schools. You don't need to replace your current email server, but it comes with free Exchange Online built in which will ease the burden in your IT Support if you have your own Exchange server. Anyway, that's one for the future, but back to the matter at hand, all you need to do is sign up and register your domain for Office 365 for Education. Once you've done this, your users will be able to log in and download Office 365 for themselves. The copy of Office is valid for the duration a student is at the school and for the duration the staff member is an employee. Hope that helps!
