Microsoft products for staff

The Microsoft Workplace Discount Programme offers discounts to University staff on Microsoft Surface devices and Office 365 subscriptions, though please note that most University members can already download and use Office 365.

Windows 11 is offered at a cost of £119.  Microsoft no longer provide Windows 10 in this way, but have advised that this can be purchased from retailers such as Curry's if required.
