As title, how can I do it?
As you known, buy a new software of window 10 was great expensive for the student.
Anyone who has a good suggestion?

Try checking with your school if they offer any discounted Educational versions of Windows.

Just to clarify. Is the Win10 going to be installed on a computer with a current or previously activated install of Win 7 or 8? If so, the Free upgrade path to Win 10 is still available.
If it is to be installed on a computer that has never had an OS, such as a custom build, then cwwozniak's suggestion should be followed.

I recently tried to install a fresh Win 10 and typed in a Win 7 key. It worked.
I have yet to find it necessary to enter a key for any Win 10 upgrades I've done. All installs have auto activated without a glitch.

If you "found" it on the microsoft site, it is fine. If you found it on some torrent site, NO.
Windows is NOT free. There are numerous discounts, etc however it still costs something.
There is the free upgrade however you did pay something for the win7/8 version.
Yes, using a win7/8 key still works. Did a clean install a few weeks ago using that procedure.
