What are licences and how do they work?

Licences control students' access to different subjects.

What are licences?

Licences are used to decide which classes have access to which subjects and for what period of time. 

You will encounter licences in two places: when you're creating a new class and when you're viewing existing classes.

Below is a breakdown of what the different parts of a licence are.

Item Description
See the table below for a full list of subjects that appear on licences.
Purchase Status
A licence may be set to either  'Purchased' or 'Trialling'. This generally depends on whether or not you're subscribed for a particular subject but can also depend on whether or not a licence is for an official competition.
Expiry Date
This is the date the licence will expire on. Any students on this licence will likely lose access once it becomes inactive.
