ICT - Microsoft Office- Free for Students

Free software for students:

New in 2016 - Office 365 ProPlus (from the Dept. of Education WA) 

ProPlus provides the latest version of Microsoft Office for current students, free of charge. Students can download and install all the Office applications including Word, Excel and PowerPoint on up to five Mac or Windows computers and they can also install Office Mobile on up to 5 supported mobile devices.  

All students with a valid Departmental portal login and Dept. email account can get this software - simply click on the Office 365 icon at the top of the student email screen, then click on the orange Install button and follow the on-screen prompts. The Student Guide to Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus provides step-by-step instructions for accessing, downloading and installing the software. 

Who can use these downloaded applications?

Once the MS Office suite is installed on a computer or tablet, it is available to any user of that device. The Department of Education’s licence with Microsoft allows for this as long as 50% or more of the usage is by a student or staff member of the Department.
