Downloading Corel

Corel is available for all students who have access to the Faculty of Science and Engineering labs that are authorized to install and use the software. Students are not covered under our site license other than for use on University owned machines.  Use on personal machines is not permitted.

Students can buy their own licences for home use, and may generally install each product on up to 3 devices so long as they are not running at the same time. They will need to check each product though.

CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite X8 is available here:

Current cost: $ 119.95 (with 20% discount), $ 149.95 (without discount)

For staff who require the software to be installed on their office computers, or take home devices, they will need to log a request through their local computer consultants, or through our online self service portal Kuhukuhu.
