    Hi

    Just got the stuff in the post for the Open University course and in their magazine they had an advert for discounted software.

    It looks like I could get Adobe Photoshop Extended CS3 (Student) for £139.83 inc VAT.

    Am I right in thinking I would be stupid not to get at as the full price is quite a bit more? Also is the student edition any different or is it the full version but discounted?

    Student Software is exactly the same as the retail versions. In fact you might get more (I can recall getting some baseball caps in a Microsoft Office student edition some years ago!).

    All you need to do is provide proof you are a student of a recognised body, which you are, and then you can walk away with a bargain!

    Go for it I say.

    ...and the same goes for anyone with kids of school age too!

    I've read that for Adobe to class you as a student you have to be on atleast a two year course. Does anyone know if that is try because if so the 10 week course isn't going to get me a bargin?

    You have to send Adobe profe of your course for them to send you a serial key so its not even like you get it with the box.

    This quote directly from the Adobe website:
    That suggests that your 10 week course would not qualify, but the wording is rather ambiguous.

    To me that could suggest that you don't have to be enrolled on degree course because the OU is a Higher Education establishment accredited public or private university or college that grants degrees requiring not less than the equivalent of two (2) years study.

    However if I could get away with that is another matter!
