Students to get free Office 365 and upgrade to Unlimited Storage
For almost a year Students in the US could claim free Office 365 subscriptions, with 1TB OneDrive Storage. Microsoft yesterday announced that this offer is now available worldwide.
According to Microsoft, it includes the 5.5 million eligible students in Australia, the nearly 5 million eligible students in Germany, 7 million more in Brazil, 1.3 million at Anadolu University in Turkey, every student in Hong Kong and millions more.
If you are currently a student, or staff, at a qualifying school use the Online Checker to see if you are eligible for Office 365 and 1TB OneDrive Storage.
Students—Go to office.com/getoffice365 and enter a school-provided email address.
Teachers—Go to office.com/teachers and enter your school-provided email address.
Once signed up for Office 365 you get:
The latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Access and Publisher installed on up to five PCs or Macs and up to five mobile devices like iPad, Android and Windows tablets.
1TB of storage on OneDrive you can use to store and share all your documents across all your devices.
Of course, many Irish third-level colleges such as Dublin City University allow past pupils and alumni to retain their college e-mail address. You could perhaps try to register for the offer using this address and see if you are eligible.
Then, when you have completed the registration head on over to the Unlimited Storage offer to see if you can get that paltry 1 Terabyte upgraded to 10TB.
