Software with additional license costs

Specialist Software Applications

IT Services ensures that all essential software is made available to staff through the various licensing agreements we maintain, however you may require additional specialist software for a specific project or task.

This page provides details of the most common software applications requested, provides an indicative cost, and also covers the purchasing process.

If you require software that is not listed below or if there are no purchasing details, then you should contact the IT Helpdesk who will be able to provide the details or allocate an engineer to discuss this with you.

Please note: Our software agreements only allow the installation of the software on university owned computers

Adobe Software

To order Adobe software you will need to contact ITS with the relevant budget code. We will then raise a purchase order for you and arrange the licence with the supplier. Access to Adobe software in most cases can be provided as soon as the purchase order is authorised.

Creative Cloud Suite

This provides access to the full Adobe suite of tools including; Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, Dreamweaver CC and Acrobat XI Pro. A number of on-line services are also included with this subscription 

The full list of  services and prices can be seen on the Adobe website.

Creative Cloud Suite is purchased via an annual subscription and can be either an individual user or a device licence.  Individual user licences can only be used by one user but on multiple devices. A device licence can be used by multiple users but only on the one device.  The cost of an individual user license for the full suite of applications costs £177+Vat.

Creative Cloud - Individual Applications

Adobe will also supply individual applications from the Creative Cloud Suite. Again this is a subscription licence and is therefore an annual charge.

Whilst all core applications from the Creative Cloud Suite are available individually, a few such as Captivate and Presenter are excluded at this time.

The full list of  services and prices can be seen on the Adobe website.

Although most tools are included in our campus wide agreement with Microsoft, one regular request is for Visio Professional 2013. This package is used to create professional diagrams to simplify complex information. The latest edition has updated shapes, collaboration tools and the ability to create data-linked diagrams.

As an educational institution we are able to purchase individual licences for just £46 inclusive 2

If you wish to purchase an additional Microsoft licence then you will need to contact the IT Helpdesk with the relevant budget code.
