We are excited to introduce Microsoft 365 for Education - a new licensing model to help our customers accelerate their digital transformation! The new model reflects our efforts to reduce licensing complexity and aligns more closely with our cloud products while maintaining full flexibility for hybrid environments.
The EDU Desktop bundle is transitioning into two new bundles: Microsoft 365 A3 and Microsoft 365 A5 which include the Office 365, Windows 10 Enterprise, and Enterprise Mobility + Security suites. Both of these new bundles also include generous student use benefits** that allow you to cover your student population with many of the same productivity and security tools that you purchase for faculty and staff. We are also continuing to offer our free Office 365 A1 for Education suite for your core collaboration needs.
Click through the suites in the chart below* for a closer look at what is included in each bundle and explore how your organization can leverage cutting-edge cloud technology to enjoy secure collaboration and learning.
* The bundles listed above are shown as found in Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES) agreements
