From 1st December 2013 Microsoft is offering all students a free subscription of Office 365 ProPlus whilst they are enrolled in an education establishment. The Long Road Sixth Form College IT Services department has got the scheme up and running ahead of their original schedule, which means that our students can sign up from Tuesday 10th December.
The subscription is available for both pc and Mac users as well as telephone-based devices. Pc users will have access to Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, OneNote, Lync and InfoPath 2013. Mac users will have access to Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint 2011.
The subscription is only valid whilst the student is enrolled and studying at Long Road Sixth Form College. Once the student finishes his or her course, the software is set to reduced functionality mode, and the student will be required to purchase an upgrade product to continue using the software.
