Apple is now offering Apple Music student membership in more than 30 countries including Canada, China, India, and Indonesia.
For example, Canada students who sign up will get the access to the Apple Music service at $4.99. This is a great deal considering the fact the standard Apple Music membership rate is $9.99. You can get the access with this rate for up to 48 months.
Apple Music student membership exists for a few months, but it was available only in Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.
As of Tuesday, Apple Music student membership program is also available in Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Chile, Colombia, Finland, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Switzerland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates.
Apple partnered up with UNiDAYS again, to verify student enrollment which is necessary for this special pricing plan. When you join Apple Music as a student member, UNiDAYS will verify that you are enrolled in a college or university, and you are good to go.
UNiDAYS will periodically re-validate the user’s student status. If UNiDAYS confirms you no longer have student status your student membership will automatically switch to individual membership. The same thing happens when you reach 48-months of student membership.
Another way to get a student discount is by logging in via school’s Wi-Fi.
In case you have Apple Music individual membership at the moment and you are a student, you can transfer your account and go for a student membership plan. You can do that via iTunes or Music app on your device.
Other music services such as Spotify also offer discounts for students. With this move, Apple can attract more users for their music service.
