Further information and support

Information about previous versions of COMSOL:

Teaching versions of COMSOL 5.4 and 5.5 have previously been made available to taught students, as a local installation option for Windows, Mac and Linux users.

The COMSOL teaching licence has recently been updated (October 2022), and users with existing local installations will need to update their COMSOL licence information, otherwise the software will not open. 

The most recent version of COMSOL can be accessed through AppsAnywhere on Windows computers, or as a download option for personal Mac and Linux systems, but if you need to continue to use version 5.4 or 5.5 as part of your studies, please see the related article about updating your COMSOL Teaching licence.
