    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    I don't know what requirements that you need meet.
    You can program in PL/SQL with only Oracle RDBMS installed on PC.

    Code:
      1  declare
      2  begin
      3  dbms_output.enable(32000);
      4  dbms_output.put_line('Hello WORLD!');
      5* end;
    SQL> /
    Hello WORLD!
    
    PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

    Oracle was never certified on any Home MS Windows edition, so you should consider upgrading your operating system.

    As you are a student, I'd suggest Oracle 11g XE (Express Edition) which is a fully operational database and is an excellent choice for a student who wants to practice SQL and PL/SQL.

    As I said: even if you install it on MS Windows 7 Home, there's no guarantee that it'll actually work as expected. You might try, though.
