MAXQDA teaching license

Are you about to set up a seminar for students to analyse qualitative data with MAXQDA? We support teachers who teach research methods with a free course licenses for their students.

Teachers can request a free MAXQDA license for every student who takes part in their class to use during the course duration. Students will get their own MAXQDA license (MAXQDA Standard) to run on their private computers and work on their research projects or exercises. This way, students will get to know the tools thoroughly and gain valuable experience with the software.


The teaching license may be requested for a verified course focusing on research methods. It is available for all participants of the course. The license validity depents on the lengths of your class/module with a maximum of 100 days.

If students want to use MAXQDA for their bachelor thesis, master thesis or dissertation, these final projects cannot be completed with the teaching license. In this case students may choose one of our price-reduced student licenses.
