Tableau for Students: Free access to Tableau Desktop

Good news, everyone! Tableau Desktop is now freehref> for all full-time students. Tableau can help you with research projects, internships and – most importantly – building job skills for the future.

We talked with Mike Thurston, a Senior HR Analytics Research Analyst at Intermountain Healthcare, who used Tableau in some of his classes at Utah State University. “My experience using Tableau in the classroom definitely helped me to get the position I’m in today,” he said. “The posting for my job listed knowledge of Tableau and SQL as requirements, and I brought a Tableau work sample into my interview. On the next interview, they told me they wanted me to do for them what I had done with Tableau in my class. I now use Tableau every day.”

Through Tableau for Studentshref>, you can get a 1-year licence of Tableau Desktop for free! There’s no catch – just help us verify that you’re a full-time student attending an accredited school.
