Do I have to use Office 365 ProPlus as
part of my studies?
No. The use of Office 365 ProPlus is completely optional, but the Office 365 suite (which includes popular products such as Microsoft Word and Excel) offers a significant package that will assist in your studies.
Additionally, the functionality included with Microsoft OneDrive offers students 25GB of cloud storage that will provide an excellent shareable storage and backup location for all of your important files.
Best of all, there is no cost to you as a student, with the entire suite free of charge!
