You may heard that students enrolled in degree-granting universities and colleges can join Apple Music at a discounted monthly rate.
The student plan costs $4.99 a month, which is the same price you’ll find on Spotify, though it’s worth pointing out that the student discount only lasts 12 months on Spotify. As for Apple Music, service itself is the same as any other subscription, and the discounted rate applies for four years after you sign up. You’ll need to verify your enrollment status when you sign up (though you can always work around that a little bit).
Better yet, the discount’s available for students in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Denmark, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The option to enroll is rolling out throughout the day, so keep an eye on it if it’s not available in your region right now.
However, because Apple Music is priced slightly differently in other markets, the cost of the student membership will vary. But in all markets, it will be 50 percent off the standard subscription price.
The cost reduction will be available for up to four years following sign-up, and those years don’t have to be continuous. In other words, a student who takes breaks in between semesters can still sign up for a student membership when they return to school. In addition, those who are enrolled in Master’s programs are also able to sign up for a student membership, as it’s aimed at anyone attending college or university, regardless of degree.
The membership tier will be made available starting today to both new and existing subscribers who will be able to either sign up or change their membership from the web or the Apple Music mobile application for iOS and Android.
The company is also working with a leading student verification technology provider, UNiDAYS, to ensure that those who are signing up as students are actually enrolled at a supported school.
All in all, if you are still a student right, now it is time to get your student discount!
