Free Office 365 ProPlus for Students
As part of the School’s Microsoft Agreement, students can now gain access to Office 365 ProPlus (a full version of the Microsoft Office suite) for free, to use on their own personal devices.
This will make it easy for every student to access the latest and best version of Office 365 on up to five devices, providing consistency when learning at home and reinforcing 21st century skills through the use of technology.
What is Office 365 ProPlus?
Office 365 ProPlus entitles students to download local copies of the full version of Microsoft Office 365, including familiar Office applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Access, Lync and Publisher on up to five personal devices. This is made available via Microsoft for Windows, Apple, and Android devices.
To be eligible, you need to have been provided with a School email address (for example @hobart.org.uk), be at least 13 years old, and have internet access.
You are able to continue to use the software as long as you remain a student at the School. When this is no longer the case, the software will enter a reduced functionality mode where you will only be able to view documents. To continue having full access to the software, you will need to re-verify eligibility with a new educational establishment or enter in to a paid subscription for Office 365 with Microsoft.
