    You can get free open sources equivalents like libraoffice, otherwise you'd need an ac.uk address to get office 365.

    Another option is using Google Docs, which is free if you gave a Google account but needs Internet connection.

    Libreoffice is a good replacement and will happily open .docx / .doc
    Google docs lets you import / export .docx and .doc easily but I find formatting doesn't always translate.

    I don't think they are, just seeing if there's a student version.

    OpenOffice is quite good (openoffice.org, I think). It does powerpoints, spreadsheets and word processing (like Word, Powerpoint and Excel) but it's completely free (and it can open and save files in the same formats as Microsoft Word). No internet connection required once you've downloaded it, and you don't need an account or anything like that.
