You do not need a OneDrive account (the new name for Microsoft's SkyDrive) to run Office 365 on a PC or MAC. However, you will need a OneDrive account to run Office Mobile for Andorid, iPhone or iPad.
You can choose to use OneDrive on your PC or MAC to sync your documents across all your devices.
By using/creating your own OneDrive account, you will not lose access to your files and documents at the end of your course.
