My girlfreind needs office for the PC and since she is studying a distance learning course I suggested buying the student edition of Microsoft Office. However, it is not clear if she qualifies from the MS website.
Does anyone have any experience of this problem or any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry to differ, but I bought the box which contains the CDs. No more sending off cards. Just had to register either by card or online. If yo do buy it, check with retailer to ensure that CD is in the box !
I believe that the standard student/teacher pack is now supplied on CD and there are minimal or no checks.
From Amazon Site: Eligibility for student licence Students: Full or part-time student aged five or over enrolled on a course that will deliver an academic qualification publicly recognised by the Department for Education & Skills (DfES) or the Irish Department of Education (DOE)
Parents and guardians: Parents and guardians who have a child who is a qualifying student and wish to buy software for their child's educational use.
Teachers: Full or part-time registered to teach in a school, college or educational establishment recognised by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), the Irish Department of Education (DoE), or the Higher Education Authorities (HEAs).
I purchases Studen & Teacher Office 2003 when it was released way back for about £90 and have now installed it successfully on 5 comps (my own, family etc) no questions asked on purchase or installation - why is everyone SOOOO paranoid???
thanks for all the posts - picked up a copy yesterday, and the CD was in the box and no questions asked.
I don't think it's about being paranoid, some retailers will not except the software back if you had a problem qualifying for the educational privilage. So to have a £100 useless package on your hand is the worry.
