How to request your educational student license and start using the software

Student guidance

This guide will teach you how to request your educational student license and start using the software. Please note that we offer two different types of student licenses.

  • Educational licenses for coursework

If your university has signed a contract with One Click LCA, a license is created for their use, where a tutor manages the license. The tutor will have a license key which will be given out to the students. With this license key, you can start one new project on the university license. Each project can be licensed for a period of 1 year. It is possible to start a new project but no data transition from one project to another is possible.

  • Educational license for individual students

If you requested a free student license for individual use for your dissertation or final year project you can get request a student license. You will be provided with a license key and can directly link the project to the student license. Each project can be licensed for a period of 1 year.

We offer student licenses for Europe & International, as well as student licenses for North America.
