Apple Student Discount & Offers

Apple has always been popular among students, whether it’s the latest iPhone, iPad or Mac. However, purchasing the latest Apple release on a student budget can be a little tricky – which is where Apple student discount comes in.

Apple products have plenty on offer for those students in creative degrees such as photography and graphic design. But more recently, Apple has been adding amazing features to its products that will appeal to those on other courses too, such as note taking with the Apple Pencil on the iPad – or the latest feature where text can be scanned from notebooks into a digital form (making taking lecture notes a breeze).

What is Apple student discount?

Finding Apple’s student discount is easy – just head to the student section of Apple’s online store. Discounts vary across the product range and change regularly – so keep an eye out for savings on your favourite tech.

What products are available for Apple student discount?

You can get your hands on some amazing deals. One of the most recent Mac student discounts was to buy an eligible Mac or iPad for your university study and get a pair of brand-new AirPods for free. Other offers include 20% off AppleCare+.

As expected, any deals with amazing freebies have limited availability. So, if you’re not in a rush and there isn’t a deal on, it might be worth waiting to see if something better comes up. You could save yourself £159.99 on the price on brand-new AirPods, for example.

Students can also bag themselves three-months of free Apple Music and Apple TV+ access. And once the extended free trial is over, you can get continue listening to your favourite music at a reduced student rate of £4.99 p/m for both services.

Plus, you could save up to £100 on MacBook and iMac models, though discount availability is product dependent.

When it comes to iPad student discount, you can save up to £80 – again, depending on the different models.

Unfortunately, there’s no iPhone or Apple Watch student discount, as yet. Be sure to check Apple’s T&Cs for more information about what products are eligible for a discount.

How to get student discount?

It’s really easy to get Apple student discount. You can register using the student discount service UNiDAYS. It’s free to register and it unlocks discounts for a range of other amazing stores.

Save with trade in

Do you have an old iPhone lying around? With Apple releasing new iPhone lines every year, you might feel it time for an upgrade. With Apple’s trade in scheme, you can save some of the cost of a brand-new iPhone, simply by handing in your unused Apple items. Trade in an eligible item and you’ll get either credit towards your next purchase, or an Apple Store Gift Card to be used anytime. Everything from iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and Macs can be traded in (depending on the model). And if your device can’t be traded in, Apple will recycle it for free! Find out if your device is eligible on the Apple website  

Don’t forget, you can still get student pricing. So trade in your old device and use the money on a new product with student discount added to it!
