What’s the difference between Office 365 and Office 2019?

Office 365 is a subscription that comes with premium apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access (Publisher and Access available on PC only). The apps can be installed on multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and Android phones. Office 365 also comes with services like 1 TB of OneDrive storage, 60 Skype minutes per month and Microsoft chat and phone support. With a subscription, you get the latest versions of the apps and automatically receive updates when they happen.

Office 2019 is a one-time purchase that comes with classic apps like Word, Excel and PowerPoint for PC or Mac, and does not include any of the services that come with an Office 365 subscription. One-time purchases don’t have an upgrade option, which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you’ll have to buy it at full price.

I’m a student/teacher/educator, which version of Office should I choose?

First, check to see if you are eligible for Office 365 Education, which is free for qualified teachers and students, and includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Microsoft Teams and other classroom tools from Microsoft. Office 365 Education is not a trial and is available for free to accredited academic institutions who have successfully signed up for this program.

If your school is not eligible for Office 365 Education, you can choose among the Office 365 Personal or Home or Office 2019 Home and Student versions, find the Office version that fits your budget and needs.

If you do not wish to have a subscription based licence then Office 2019 Home and Student is for you. This is a non-commercial usage licence, if you need a commercial licence then Office 2019 Home and Business will meet this criteria.

 

I work for a Charity/Non-Profit organisation, which version of Office should I choose?
