Members of staff may purchase Microsoft software at academic prices. Staff may opt for one of the following purchasing options:

  • Full Package Product (FPP)

    FPPs are boxed software packages that include installation media or download instructions, and a product key to activate the software. FPPs are available on order and cost more than OLPs.

    If you would like to order an FPP or request more information, kindly contact our Helpdesk.

  • Open Licence Program (OLP)

    OLP licences are software licences that do not include physical media and manuals. OLPs are managed and installed by IT Services. IT Services keeps a record of every purchased licence in order to be able to reinstall or transfer the software as you may require.

    To purchase OLP software, please choose the appropriate payment option below.

The following payment options are accepted:

  • Department payment through Journal Transfer – Departments are requested to send a completed Journal Request Form to IT Services Reception Desk.
  • Personal online payment – Members of staff can pay online using their personal AWRF debit card or any other accepted credit/debit card.

Microsoft software information and system requirements are available on the Microsoft website.
