Subscription ProgrammesPrint page
With the Subscription Programmes you pay a lower annual fee and receive an annual licence to run software, with the right to upgrade to new releases. At the end of each subscription period, you can either renew, pay to convert your licences to perpetual ones, or stop using the software. The subscription scheme for education is Campus Agreement.
Perpetual ProgrammesTop ^
With the Perpetual Programmes you pay a one-off fee and receive a licence to use a specific version of the software forever. The recommended scheme for education is the Select Licence, which offers the largest savings in return for an agreed volume of licence purchases. Although there are a minimum number of licences, even small schools can qualify for the Select Licence by purchasing through their local authority agreement.

This is a way for establishments not belonging to an organisation with an active Select agreement to buy a small number of licences. E.g. an independent nursery seeking to buy new software.
