What you usually get in the student software box is an application form that you send off to the supplier with proof of your student status, they will then send the software to you. On the other hand you could spend nothing and download these.

Be worth checking first as it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but generally to qualify for eductaional versions you must fit the following:

You are a student aged 5+ years at a primary, secondary or special needs school.
You are a student aged 18+ years registered full-time or part-time in any school/college/university or attending courses that award qualifications recognised by the UK Department of Education & Employment (DfEE), or the Irish Department of Education (DoE).
As a parent you have children in the above two categories, and you wish to purchase on their behalf, following the same procedures as defined for students.
As a teacher your job involves supporting IT in schools/colleges/universities, whilst being able to operate from home - expanding your own knowledge or preparing course materials.
As a member of support staff either full-time or part-time at any school/college/university recognised by the UK Department of Education & Employment (DfEE), or the Irish Department of Education (DoE).

However, if you later don't fulfil any of the above e.g. leave your job in education, then the licence(s) is/are no longer valid
