Every student can download the whole Office Suite (worth £390!) to their home computers for FREE. This means students can use Word, PowerPoint, Excel and other programmes at home.

How to get it

  1. Firstly, students need to login to their Office 365 account using their email address and password here.
  2. In the top right hand corner, there is a cogwheel icon - click this and then search in settings for 'software'.
  3. This will take you to a different page which has a 'install' button - click this and then follow the setup instructions.

If you have any issues, look on Frog for more details or speak to someone at the IT helpdesk.
