Written by Hannah Powell
Published date 14 August 2020

From the start of the 2020 Autumn term, you will be able to get Adobe CC for free by connecting to UAL computers via remote access – more details on this soon. However, some students choose to purchase their own Adobe CC subscription to guarantee access at all times.

We're therefore happy to announce that UAL students can purchase a discounted personal subscription to Adobe CC for through an exclusive deal.

About the deal


For £48 you will get access to the full Adobe Creative Cloud desktop apps until 13 August 2021.

The suite includes: Acrobat Pro, Audition, Adobe XD, After Effects, Animate, Bridge, Character Animator, Dimension, Dreamweaver, Fuse, Illustrator, InCopy, InDesign, Lightroom, Media Encoder, Photoshop, Prelude, Premiere Pro, Premiere Rush and Spark. You’ll also receive 100GB storage on the Adobe Creative Cloud.

The average student discount rate if purchased directly through Adobe is normally around £16.24 per month – that’s a huge saving!
