for NSW High School Students
The enterprise agreement with Adobe allows NSW high school students to install Adobe software for free on personally owned devices. This gives high school students access to Adobe Creative Cloud, Spark and more.
Access to Adobe software by students, is provided through single-sign on via the DoE Student Portal. Home Internet access is required. The video below explains how Adobe Creative Cloud applications can be accessed by NSW DoE staff and students, both on personally owned Windows and Mac devices.
The range of Adobe software has differing device requirements. The hardware specifications of the device will determine its capacity to run each of the titles on offer. Some titles have minimum processor and RAM requirements. The following lists show what can be installed on DoE and personal devices.
Adobe Creative Cloud for Windows and Mac
Acrobat Pro DC
Adobe Web Apps
Adobe Creative Cloud Express
InDesign Publish Online
XD Publish Services
Adobe Mobile Apps (iOS and Android)

The NSW Department of Education is unable to offer technical assistance to students in how to use Adobe Creative Cloud products. Your school teachers may be able to assist depending on your questions. If you are having user account issues and have followed the instructions in the video and are unable to sign into your DoE Adobe account, please report this to your teacher and ask if they could log a service desk call with EDConnect on your behalf.
For general help for everyone, please visit the Adobe Help Centre. You can also join the Creative Cloud Forums and connect with Adobe experts from around the world!
NOTE: For students in Kindergarten through year 6, access to Adobe Creative Cloud is only available at school on school-owned Windows and Mac devices. K-6 students are able to use Adobe Creative Cloud Express via their department user account, both at school and at home.
