An individual Apple Music subscription in the US normally costs $9.99 per month, the new student subscription will be just $4.99 per month. This offer is currently available in seven countries including the UK, Denmark, New Zealand, Ireland, Germany, Australia and of course the US.
The 50 percent student discount is available for up to 4 years following enrollment. The years don’t need to be continuous, so students that take a break in-between semesters can still sign up for a student membership when they return to school.
Earlier this year, the Financial Times announced that Apple Music topped over 10 million paying subscribers.
Apple is working with UNiDAYS to ensure those who are signing up as students are actually enrolled at a supported school. It is also worth noting that Apple also offers up to 15 percent off for students online via UNiDAYS.
According to reports Apple Music will be getting quite a big update at the WWDC in June. The streaming service has been under fire for bad design, glitches and issues, hopefully no longer.
