    Make Photoshop free for students in creative courses

    Current
      After studying Games Design for a year now, I had to invest in an individual photography plan by Adobe for £10 a month. This wasn't so bad at first, but when it came to cancelling my subscription after the academic year ended, I was charged around £70 in a cancellation fee. Considering not many students can afford good local housing, I believe Photoshop should be made available to those in creative courses by sharing the user logins we're given to work in university from with us. This would also help with students that commute, as travelling home late this time of year can get fairly unsafe. Thank you for reading my concern

    12:46pm on 28 Jan 20 Hi Scott, We are actively having conversations with Digital Services to have updates on this, their is most definitely scope for this to happen as adobe offer this as a product to HE institutions, but our University need to decide on the scaling (aka which Students' have access to the software?). This may take some time, as it would need to be approved by committee. Kind Regards, Scott William Smith
