Hopefully, you already know about The Ultimate Steal, which is our special student offer on Office 2007. It allows your students to buy Office 2007 Ultimate for just £38.95 – as long as you’ve issued them with a .ac.uk email address. And because it is the Ultimate edition, they will get absolutely the whole Office suite in one neat package*.
So students can complete their work quicker, make it look nicer and organise it more easily.
Since 5th March, any student or member of staff (we tell by asking them to register on the site with their ‘ac.uk’ email address) has had an added bonus because they are entitled to get a upgrade to Office 2010 when it is released (it comes as a digital download).
If you’ve got students who want to buy Office, but are waiting for the next version, then all of their worries are over!
We’ve been running this special offer each year for the last 3 years now, and although students have become increasingly aware of it, it may be worth reminding them – either from placing a link on your intranet, or letting them know by email or in your newsletters.
ps You can also pick up Windows 7 with a student discount from The Ultimate Steal site too.
* They get the latest versions of Excel, Word, PowerPoint and OneNote, as well as Outlook, Publisher, Access, Groove and InfoPath. At £38.95, it’s about 90% off estimated retail price. But you’ve got to have a student or faculty email address with a .ac.uk domain from a UK higher or further education institution.
