Creative Cloud (CC) - Licenced individual(s) within a school/dept.  This is an annual subscription model and gives access to the latest version of Adobe Creative Cloud software.  We have an annual agreement (with a single renewal date - 12 th April) with any purchases made throughout the year added on a pro-rata basis.  As the name suggests these are the creative software titles available from Adobe and a subscription method is the only way to purchase the rights to use this software.
The software is purchased on a named individual (user) basis and registered to that user.
The user will automatically receive notification prior to the software renewal date.
Unless IT Services are notified otherwise by the user or department, the licence will automatically be renewed and charged to the budget code originally provided.
Licences can be bought for single CC applications or the complete CC application suite.
Note: If purchasing more than one application it is cheaper to purchase the full CC suite.


Promotional rates are currently available for Adobe CC application subscriptions – quote available on request.
