    I just bought my new MBP for uni and I was wondering if i can still buy apple care for another 3 years when i go to england for uni. I'm going to buy it from england from an actual apple store not from here because we only have distributors here.

    Sure, I would have thought distributors and authorised Apple resellers would stock and sell the Apple care protection plan? If not, you can buy directly from Apple in any store. You would have to extend warranty within the first year and it covers from the day of purchase of your MBP.

    Or call AppleCare and just do it over the phone.

    You know if you buy in the UK you get a free 3 warranty when you buy online as a student? Plus the discount is about 14% for a student. So the base 13" MBP is about £850 including a 3 year warranty. If you have just bought your MBP I would consider returning it and buying in the UK when you arrive.

    If you can't do that then yes you can buy AppleCare here if you want. Students get a discount on that aswell, I believe it is ~£160 for the 13" MBP.
