PowerBI Report Server using Azure's Premium license.



I'm researching to add approximately a class of 35-40 students to a premium Azure account VM which will run PowerBI premium server. 


I have a University department's premium license for Azure. I was thinking of setting up a PowerBI report server using the Azure's premium license. I used the Pricing Link and it shows me that it would cost around 5.2k for 35 Pro and 5 Frequent Users. I have been reading the costs and usage, but the students in the class will use just the basic features and share reports with each other.



Would we require to set up 35 PowerBI Pro license to create and share reports and 5 PowerBI licenses for frequent users? I am not sure about setting up a report server and test adding users directly in case it starts adding up costs to the Azure's subscription.


Any pointers would be really helpful.


Thank you,
