Today Apple has begun offering its Apple Music Student Memberships in 25 additional countries, cutting the cost for Apple Music by roughly 50 percent for students enrolled in a college or university. The student discount varies by country.
As of today, the Apple Music Student Membership is now 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.
This is in addition to already being available in the United States, Australia, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The program originally launched in May 2016 and is now available in 32 countries total.
Those interested in the discount will have to validate their credentials through UNiDAYS. The service is used to confirm that Apple Music subscribers are actually enrolled in a college or university before giving the discount to students.
Students are required to check in with UNiDAYS on a regular basis to confirm their enrollment in a college or university. Subscribers who are no longer students or have used the discount for 48 months will be switched over to a standard individual account at full price.
