Free Microsoft Office for students
From December 2014, students at the University will be able to download Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus to use on a Windows PC for free for the duration of their course.
Students will be able to install full versions of Office on up to five devices, including phones and tablets. Access is only free for the duration of a student’s course.
Windows Programs included in this student deal include:
• Word 2013
• Excel 2013
• PowerPoint 2013
• OneNote 2013
• Access 2013
• Publisher 2013
• Outlook 2013
• Lync 2013
• InfoPath 2013
Mac users will have access to Office 2011 which includes fewer programmes:
• Word 2011
• Excel 2011
• PowerPoint 2011
• Outlook 2011
This is all part of Microsoft’s recently announced Student Advantage Scheme. Signing up will grant other privileges, including one Terabyte (1TB) of cloud storage space with Microsoft OneDrive.
This along with the iPhone and Android applications for Office means you can truly work on the go as well as at your desk.
When the service becomes available for Sussex students in December, they will be able to sign in on Microsoft’s website using their school credentials in order to receive the download.
This move could push competitors into matching Microsoft’s generosity towards students which benefits us all.
