So after hours of messing about, I figured out a work around. This will only help you if you can use a MAK key.
Uninstall any versions of office 2010 or 2013 you may have installed. OBVIOUSLY :)
Run the office 15 Click-To-Run remove tool.
Reboot if required
Copy your office CD to your HDD (you need to add some install instructions)
Launch and admin command prompt and navigate to where you copied your cd files. Then run your office setup with the command - setup.exe /admin (example c:\2013>setup.exe /admin)
This will launch the office customization tool
Go to Licencing and user interface - select enter product key - load in your MAK key with no spaces (it will insert dashes) - accept the licence agreement
file - save - and name the file (eg. 2013.msp) and save it to the updates folder within you office install. (eg c:\2013\updates\2013.msp)
exit the tool and command and run setup.exe as per normal. (you may need to run as admin if required)
