    Hello again Joe

    Apologies but I'm advised that there is no access to the full Office 365 or to the free copies of Office after a student graduates, I'm afraid.

    It's likely however that it will revert to demonstration mode of the Office Web apps which is what is referred to as limited functionality, this would then require you to take out a new subscription.

    I hope this helps

    Best wishes
    Paul .

    Hi
    from today I have a problem accessing my student office 365, I tried to uninstall it from the control panel and install it again, but it keeps rejecting my NTU mail and password, no matter that its correct, what should I do in such a case? Message pops out that there is no such user?

    Doubt I'll receive a reply, but when i go to office 365 settings, and software & install, no icons appear, i cannot select a language. There isn't anything to download Office.
    Anyone have any idea?
    I've even tried opening this in a different web browser, but still no luck.

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    Hi Carl,

    Unfortunately I am still getting the same page as Brandon was getting. I have followed these instructions ( https://support.ntu.ac.uk/hc/en-us/articles/201651956-Student-Office-365-Installing-Office-For-Free?page=3 ).

    This is what I am seeing instead of the "download" button http://scr.hu/3389/rmyzt . I have also tried IE, Firefox and Chrome but still seeing the same page.

    Thanks

    Hey,

    I've got two questions:

    1) Will there be a possibility to purchase a product key when the programme is limited after graduation?

    2) Does this version work on Microsoft tablets?

    Hello,

    I need some help with this if possible. I'm trying to install this on my mac and when I click either through the Office 365 settings or the direct Office 365 tab it gives me no option to install once Im on the software page.

    It just has a screen that says ' Set up your desktop applications to work with Office 365' If you already have Office for Mac Home and Business installed you need to update it to work with Office 365?

    Thanks,

    Cat
