Microsoft Office 365 Subscription

Up until a few months ago, this offer was only available to students in the USA, but Microsoft has expanded the offer to more countries, and that includes the UK. The subscription gives you access to the entire suite of online applications, desktop applications and their mobile versions. This has proved really beneficial when working on a portable device and then picking up where I left the document on my laptop.

GitHub Education Pack

GitHub Education Pack (with over 14 products and services included FOR FREE)

I am sure most of you have heard of GitHub, but for those of you who haven’t, GitHub is a Version Control System, which if you code, is probably one of the best things that exists when managing different versions or deployments of your code/software etc. It even helps when more people contribute to the project because it stores every iteration of your code so if you do something wrong you can always go back. That is why it is a version control system (or better yet a revision control system). Anyway, they have put together this amazing pack which includes a lot of goodies:

  • Free GitHub Micro account (which allows 5 private repositories)
  • Free .me domain and hosting for a year from Namecheap
  • Increased number of emails to use for free with Sendgrid (email marketing service like Mailchimp)
  • $25 credit to use for seeking help with coding questions from professionals on
  • Free bitnami Business 3 account to store your cloud applications (usually $49/month)
  • Access to CrowdFlower platform for crowdsourcing (usually $2500/month)
  • No transaction fees on the first $1000 when using Stripe
  • Access to Unreal Engine while you’re a student
  • Much much more
