Using Office 365

Studying or working from home has never been easier.

Using your Office 365 account gives you access to key online tools – such as Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Teams – which let you create and share anywhere and on any device. Just login to with your Uni email address and password.

If you haven’t used your Office 365 account yet then get an overview of these tools – Work remotely with Office 365 – and discover more by trying some of the great Office 365 courses on LinkedIn Learning.

Download free Office 2016

Office 365 gives you quick easy access to online Word, Excel, etc., but you don’t get all of their features, so we recommend that you also download the full desktop version of Office 2016 to your computer/laptop. You can download it to five devices, and you will be able to use it – on Windows and Macs – whilst you are a registered student.

By the way… did you know that your Uni email account is an account for life?
Once you have graduated, you can use your Office 365 account to send and receive emails and use your Uni email address as a contact address for job applications, etc.
