I've been trying to find out about education discounts on Adobe products, yet the web site keeps telling me that they are not available in my region. My university does offer post-grad students the option to have the IT department install Acrobat XI Pro on our laptops, but the last time I needed to do that, it took about a month's worth of back-and-forth emails with the person responsible for maintaining our bulk licenses to actually get the software installed. I currently haven't got that kind of time before I need to start working on documents for my dissertation again.
Adobe always used to have academic discounts in our region, but have recently stopped providing these licenses to local students. Does anyone know why they've stopped providing discounts for academics in the 'African' region? Shouldn't we always qualify for these discounts if we are students and academic staff?
Thanks for the links, but as I state in the original post, my region isn't eligible for education discounts. If I change the settings in the Adobe store to US or UK, for instance, I can select the education pricing.
I, however, am in South Africa, and the tab at this address - Creative Cloud pricing and membership plans | Adobe Creative Cloud - allows purchasers to select the "Students and Teachers" tab, but the options to actually add the education subscription plan to the cart is not available. I even tried to check if it was available in other regions by changing my location manually on the Adobe home page to the US. This time, the options to choose the student subscription were available, but when I clicked on the links, the site told me that the products I had selected were not available in the African region.
