According to an internal memo acquired by Appleosophy, students who are new to Apple Music can get 6 months free Instead of the standard 3 months. This 6 month offer starts from July 9 to September 26, 2019. Once the trial ends, the Apple Music plan for students is only $4.99 per month.
Apple also notes that new student plan customers will receive an email within the first 3 months with instructions on how to redeem an additional 3 months free. After the free trial, the promotion converts to a paid subscription. To qualify for an Apple Music Student Membership, the student must be a student studying a bachelor degree, post-graduate degree, or equivalent Higher Education course at a University, College (US only) or Post-Secondary School (Canada only).
We are not sure if this offer is available in other countries, but we can confirm that it’s available in the United States and Canada.
UPDATE 7.9.19 10:37 AM CDT: You can find more information about this offer on Apple’s Education Website.
