According to TechCrunch, the student membership will also be available in countries outside the United States, including the U.K., Germany, Denmark, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The cost of the student membership will vary from country to country, but will be a 50% discount in all markets.
Both new and existing subscribers can take advantage of the new student membership. Apple is reported working with UNiDAY to ensure that those who are signing up for the student membership are actually enrolled at a supported school. Students who wish to signup for the new membership can do so at this link here.
Apple's new student membership comes just after recent reports of Apple's plan to introduce a revamped version of Apple Music. The new version is expected to feature a black and white user interface with huge album artwork, but will also bring some new functions and simplifications.
Both Spotify and Tidal, Apple Music competitors, have also offered a 50% discount for students for sometime now.
Apple's new Student Membership should be rolling out shortly across supported countries.
