Apple Music once again extends free trial period for new university student subscribers to 6 months for a limited time period

Apple has extended the free trial of Apple Music for new student subscribers once again after running a similar promotion back in 2020.

This doubles the previous free trial period Apple normally offers students.

The promotion is valid for those who fit these criteria, according to Apple:

  • New subscribers only.
  • University students only.

Furthermore, the promotion is valid upto 30th April, 2021.

Apple offering a six-month free trial is a rare occurrence as the company usually only offers up to 4 months free to new subscribers. However, if you are a new university student, you can grab the deal right now and get 6 months of free Apple Music.

According to Apple, in order to qualify for an Apple Music subscription, “you must be a student studying a bachelor degree, post-graduate degree, or equivalent Higher Education course at a University, College (the U.S. only) or Post-Secondary School (Canada only). Junior, technical colleges, and special courses are also eligible in Japan.”

It’s worth noting that the Apple Music Student subscription is only available in certain countries and regions.

You’ll also need to verify your eligibility by confirming your Student status through UNiDAYS. If you need to know the exact steps for signing up to Apple Music using a Student subscription, you can head over to this Apple Support Document.

This isn’t the first time Apple is offering a six-month-long free trial period for students. Apple ran a similar promotion back in 2020 as a part of its Back To School promotion.
