Apple Music launches student deal in 82 additional markets

Apple Music launches student deal in 82 additional markets

Apple recently announced that it is expanding its Apple Music student subscription to 82 additional markets around the world including Malaysia. This means the service will be available to almost all the regions that have Apple Music. The expansion brings student memberships to almost all the markets Apple Music is available in.

The offer had already been available in the US, UK, Denmark, Ireland, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand since 2016, but now Apple is expanding it to "nearly all the countries where Apple Music is available", according to a statement from an Apple spokesperson given to Engadget.

There is no change in plan rates or types of plans though.


Two years ago, Apple first launched their student discount for subscribing to Apple Music, and, at the time, only the United Kingdom, U.S., Denmark, Germany, Australia and New Zealand could take advantage of the offer.

Now, it is offered in 82 markets, making it the largest student programme of its kind in the world. While the price varies by country, it allows students in the U.S.to subscribe for as little as $4.99 per month.

Apple Music student subscription is available for students enrolled in degree-granting universities and colleges. The plan will be valid for up to four years, with the option to include study breaks in between. The streaming service is now available in 115 countries, with over 36 million subscribers. Although Apple Music is closing the gap, it still has a lot to catch up before it becomes a "threat' to Spotify".
