If you’re a student you pay 50% less for Apple Music for up to four years

Ahead of its much talked about redesign coming this fall alongside the iOS 10 release, Apple Music has today received a new special pricing tier. The service is now offering half off its monthly subscription rate, but only if you are a student.

In the US, this works out to $4.99 per month if you qualify, instead of the usual $9.99 charged by Apple. But the new rate isn’t only available in the States, it’s also out in other countries, including the UK, Germany, Denmark, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. While the normal tier’s pricing may differ between territories, no matter where you are you’ll get 50% off as a student.

What’s more, you can take advantage of this offer for up to four years after you sign up (yet they do have to be continuous years). You can get the special student pricing even if you’re enrolled in a Master’s program, as this is aimed at anyone who is attending a college or university, regardless of the specific degree you’re after.

If you’ve already signed up for Apple Music, but qualify for the reduced pricing, you can change your subscription type from the service’s website or through its mobile apps for iOS or Android. Apple is using Unidays to verify that you are actually enrolled at one of the supported schools.
