What software is available at CCI?

We have a range of software available on our computers on-site, and that you can install on your own personal computers.

On your own device

As a student at UAL, you have access to a range of software you can install and use on your own computers for educational purposes:

Free from UAL

  • Microsoft Office – Log in using your UAL account and select "Install Office" in the top right corner.

Discount available from UAL

UAL offers a massive discount on Adobe Creative Cloud for all students, which is on top of the usual student pricing. In 2023-24 that meant that Creative Cloud was only £41.59 for the 12 months from mid-August, over the £16.24 per month that you'd usually pay.

This is a fixed period license, meaning it starts from mid-August each year and ends mid-August of the following year regardless of when you actually start paying for and using it, and there is no pro-rated discount. However, it's still cheaper if you sign up before mid-May.

Free for students

On CCI devices

CCI has high-spec Windows 11 PCs, Apple Mac Minis and Apple MacBook Pro laptops. You can access various software from UAL's self-serve applications, Company Portal on Windows, and UAL Self-Service on macOS.
