Excel 2003 enables you to turn data into information with powerful tools to analyze, communicate, and share results. Excel 2003 can help you work better in teams, and help protect and control access to your work. In addition, you can work with industry-standard Extensible Markup Language (XML) data to make it easier to connect to business processes. Outlook 2003 provides an integrated solution for managing and organizing e-mail messages, schedules, tasks, notes, contacts, and other information. Outlook 200
Microsoft Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 is a bundle of the most essential desktop applications: Word 2003 for word processing, Excel 2003 for spreadsheets, PowerPoint 2003 for presentations and Outlook 2003 for e-mail and personal information. Office applications share a common look and feel, which means there's less to learn when switching between them. There are also shared components, such as the drawing tools, that let you create charts, diagrams and text effects. Another strong point is that Visual Basic for Applications is fully integrated, enabling anything from simple macros to custom solutions that automate one or more of the Office applications. Office has been a highly capable product for years, making it hard for Microsoft to come up with compelling new features. New in Microsoft Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 is great integration with SharePoint Services running on Windows Server 2003, allowing users to save documents to an internal website with features such as update notification, task lists and version control. Tablet PC users get built-in support for Ink, letting you add handwritten notes and drawings to Office documents. Those with constant Internet access will like the updated Task Pane, offering online help and potentially third-party services direct from the Internet. Outlook has been reworked in this edition, with a better interface and more secure e-mail reading. Word 2003 is enhanced with a new Reading view, using ClearType technology and automatic page-sizing for ease in reading online documents.
Although this is the Student and Teacher edition, it is comprehensive and feature-rich. There is also a professional edition, which adds the Access 2003 database manager, Publisher 2003 for desktop publishing and some additional features in the area of XML support and rights management. Office deserves its position as the leading productivity suite. It's an excellent deal, but makes less sense as an upgrade unless you have a tablet PC or will make use of the new collaboration features. --Tim AndersonSee all Product Description

For basic home-office, if you have simple needs (or far more complex), do try out [...] - it's totally free to download and use from Sun, has basic compatibility with MS Office (it includes Writer, Calc, & DataBase, plus a `PowerPoint' style presenter and a full drawing package) and has all the main functionality of MS Office (you can buy OpenOffice as Star Office for manuals, better support etc. - but then you might well go for this student MS Office 2003 as it's not much more expensive). OpenOffice has complex user interface though, but of course it's free to download, try out and use, plus there is on-line help. There is also the cheap-as-chips Ability Office Pro at £40 from Amazon that is worth a look and includes a good database [see [...] where you can download a trial version to see if this software suits your needs before buying at Amazon].Read more ›
This was their answer.
I will be a student until July 2006, what will happen to my license after this time?
I can confirm that you will remain licensed to use it after this date, even if you are no longer a student. This is confirmed on this site, under the "pricing and ordering" section.
And this is the link
So if you don't mind only having Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint this is great value!
Especially if you're using Outlook 2000, you'll want to upgrade for Outlook 2003's spam and security features alone. Outlook 2003's secure-out-of-the-box settings make it near-impossible for viruses to spread, which means you're protected from the next Code Red or Welchia. Its junk mail filters have improved a lot over Outlook XP. And of course the biggest highlight is the drop-dead gorgeous interface: it's THE most productive interface ever for an email application. I feel the price you pay for Office 2003 is quickly recouped by the time you save reading email in Outlook alone.
Many of the changes made to Office 2003 impact large business users, such as Word's ability to edit XML, and Outlook's enhanced Exchange features. These features are not available or relevant for the home Student and Teacher market, but there's plenty else to like.
I have to present a good deal, so I liked PowerPoint's being able to burn slideshows to CD: a good, time-saving feature because you can pop in the CD on any Windows machine and expect it to play (PowerPoint burns a viewer onto the CD in case the machine doesn't have PowerPoint).
There's now a new Research Task Pane across the suite that makes the writing all those term reports and assignments so much faster. Sure, one could open up a zillion browser windows, but the Research pane consolidates the facts you need into one place, saving time. You get access to Encarta, an online translation service, and several other goodies; you can also add third party services.Read more ›
