Adobe Creative Cloud is replacing Creative Suite 6 at the end of February

16 Jan 2015

Adobe’s Creative Suite 6 has been superseded by the Creative Cloud products. At the end of February 2015 Adobe will no longer be selling the earlier Creative Suite software through the academic pricing agreement which we subscribe to.


The last date that Creative Suite products can be purchased through the Electronic Software Delivery system (ESD) is 5pm on Wednesday 18 February 2015. Any Creative Suite licences that you have bought already or buy before the deadline are perpetual: they may be used for as long as your hardware or operating system continue to support them.

Please note: Adobe Acrobat is not part of the Creative Suite and will continue to be available through the ESD.

For more details about the change or to find out about purchasing Adobe Creative Cloud products through the ESD, please visit the applications website:
