Great software Great price but...

Find this software invaluable. Yes there are free office suites out there but none match the features of ms office. My only gripe is regarding the fact that as a student i was led to believe I could purchase a four year lease of this software twice. Illness led to missing a couple of years of study leading my office 365 licence to run out last month. I tried to purchase it again, passed student verification but, was refused the software at the very last stage - stating that i had used my allowances. Can someone clarify if it is possible to purchase this software for a second time?

Does the job I want

Pleased with value for money but struggling with manipulating 'One Drive ' files especially Excel which (a) doesn't always scroll to where I want to be in the spreadsheet and(b) there's not enough help to save something from OneDrive back to my hard disk




Does the job - well!

Once you get used to the differences in appearance from desktop versions it does most of what I am familiar with from them Great to be able to access from different devices




Office Student

All the most up to date features of office for 4 years for this price is a near give-away. And included is the onedrive storage which really does work seamlessly.



Fred Nath the author

Up to the usual excellent standard very good value

I bought this for my daughter who is doing Journalism and Media at university. The terms of the offer were that she can use it on her Mac and I get to update my software on our home PC. Value for money - 5 stars. Product runs perfectly on both Windows PC and Mac. The user interface is the same as previous versions and no glitches. Downloaded easily and installed seamlessly. Good product - well done Microsoft!




Perfect For University

I hadn't used Office seriously for a couple of years, but diving into the latest Office for my university needs has me praising Microsoft all day! All the tools you could possibly need and more. The spell and grammar check seems much better than I remember it, and I make great use of the referencing tools when writing dissertations, and as usual, there are a lot of sleek templates to choose from that will add charm to any document. The functionality of office has made my studies just that bit more enjoyable!




Simply the best

This was a renewal so obviously like it




O365 University

I purchase this product, a very good offer but complex with integrating with my work place's Office and this!! I would recommend it but with caution, My OneNote and my work OneNote are different then the Online OneNote and desktop OneNote cause problems in synching; should call this MultiNote! Changing password to Hotmail also cause problems using MS Word and I guess other Office apps.





Nightmare - debited my account but no product key now unable to do my coursework.
