University edition of Office 365 to be offered via subscription only

For $79.99, students and staffers get a 4-year license to use Office 365 University; buying a perpetual license will not be an option

By , IDG News Service |  Software

Under an offer launched Friday, students who buy Office University 2010 or Office University for Mac 2011 will get Office 365 University free when it becomes available.

Office 365 University is not to be confused with Office 365 for Education, a suite of cloud-hosted collaboration server software that includes Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Lync Online and Office Web Apps. It is hosted by Microsoft and sold to educational institutions, which then make it available to their users.
