Apple is expanding discounted student memberships for Apple Music to 82 additional markets, making half price subscriptions available in nearly all regions where the Apple Music streaming service is available.

According to iMore's Rene Ritchie, student discounts are available in 79 new regions as of today, with an additional three to be added on February 26. New countries where Apple Music discounts are available for students include Israel, Malaysia, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, and Taiwan.


A full list of countries where student memberships can be purchased should is available on Apple's Apple Music availability page. You can also see if your country supports discounted Apple Music subscriptions by checking on the UNiDAYS website.

First introduced in 2016, Apple Music memberships for students cut the normal price of Apple Music in half. In the United States, this means the regular $9.99 Apple Music subscription is priced at $4.99 for students.

To qualify for discounted pricing, students must be enrolled in an eligible college or university. Student eligibility is determined and verified through UNiDAYs, a student validation service.

UNiDAYS confirms that Apple Music subscribers are enrolled in a degree-granting program before allowing customers to get the discounted subscription price.

Customers who subscribe to Apple Music with a student subscription will need to confirm their status on a regular basis through UNiDAYS. Subscribers who are no longer students or who have had student pricing for a total of 48 months will be switched over to a full price individual Apple Music subscription.

Queue Spotify Discount in 3, 2, 1

Spotify already has a better student discount.

Spotify + Hulu for $4.99.

I found out because for some reason apples school verification is very fiddly, when I switched schools apple stopped giving me a discount, although it still works everywhere else :rolleyes:

Having a .edu email address has its benefits. I’ve been a student for the last 20 years, never pay full price for software or subscription services :cool:

I am studying a degree in music production. I tried to get this and unidays rejected it. They said as my uni also do other courses non degree that I can't have the discount. There is 14 of us on the course so we all decided to go Spotify for £4.99 a month. So I'm a music producer on a degree in music using Apple Mac's and can't get Apple music discounted. You couldn't make it up. We had some surface book 2s in last week. Ableton 10 could run nearly double the amount of tracks on the surface before coughing than a similar priced Mac book "pro". Apple are losing the plot and likely to lose professionals.
