Students in schools around the globe can now get free access to Office 365. All that is required is a valid school email address, and that the school is already paying for an Office 365 subscription.
That's a big catch, enough so that I'm not sure that this offer is worth all that much - not when we already have access to free alternatives, including Libre Office and Google Docs.
But for students in schools which provide an Office license for faculty and staff, it's a good deal. The student will gain access to the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote, and Publisher, as well as 1TB of storage on OneDrive. They'll be able to install Office 365 on up to 5 PCs and 5 mobile devices.
A student can check to see if they're eligible for free Office 365 from their school by visiting office.com/getoffice365 and enter a school-provided email address.
The offer is also open to teachers, and they can sign up here: office.com/teachers.
