Microsoft is giving away five Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phones and a voucher for a winner to experience a Ferrari for the weekend. The Microsoft Virtual Academy enables students (or those who wish to become IT professionals) to enter available tracks, choosing materials to study and expand knowledge about Microsoft cloud products, for free. Think of it as an e-college.

How does one have a chance of winning the prizes? Should you be a UK resident, simply enter the code "MVAUKREG" in the 'redeem code' field once signed up. Some important details surrounding the Ferrari that should be noted:

  • Only drivers aged 28-70 will be permitted to drive the car.
  • For drivers between ages 25 and 27, Winner will be offered an alternative supercar (subject to availability)
  • Drivers must have no more than 6 points on their license and hold a valid full UK or EU Driving license and have held such for at least 2 years
    • Only 300 miles may be driven over the course of the car hire
    • Fully comprehensive insurance for up to 2 named drivers will be provided
    • Car will be delivered and collected to and from the Microsoft offices in Reading or to and from Winner’s home, at Microsoft’s election

Runner-ups will receive one of five Lumia 800s. Not a bad incentive to learn, eh? Be sure to check the terms and conditions for more information.
