What is the difference between the Adobe Education Edition and Student / Teacher Edition software?
Student and Teacher Edition
Only full-time or part-time students or teachers enrolled with a public or private university, or TAFE college, that grants degrees requiring a minimum of two years of full-time study or students enrolled fulltime in state or private secondary schools (or primary schools) are eligible to purchase Adobe student software. Non profit organisations/charities are NOT able to purchase Adobe student software. Adobe does require proof of academic status for product activation (eg. a student id card). Adobe student and teacher software can only be used for non-commercial purposes. You may continue to use the student software for non-commercial purposes after you graduate.
