Who qualifies for an Apple education discount?
Anybody who works in an education environment qualifies for a discount on Apple computers. It’s not just limited to students, teachers and lecturers, but also covers administrative workers and other staff members. Essentially it’s anybody who works for a school, college or university.
Parents of schoolchildren do not qualify (when buying for themselves), but you canpick up a discounted Mac for your child from the education store. The Apple terms and conditions state:
“Those eligible to purchase from the Apple Store for Education Individuals include teachers, staff, students and parents as follows:
Employees of any education institution – Any employee of a public or private education institution in the UK is eligible.
Post-secondary Education Students – Students attending or accepted into a post-secondary education institution in the UK are eligible to purchase.
Parents of post-secondary students – Parents purchasing on behalf of their child, who is a student currently attending or accepted into a public or private post-secondary education institution in the UK, are eligible to purchase.
Purchases from the Apple Store for Education Individuals are not for institutional purchase or resale.”
If you don’t qualify for an Apple Education Store discount, we’d recommend instead checking out the Apple Refurbished Store, which is available to everyone.
How to get an Apple student discount from the Education Store
If you think you qualify for an education discount then you should pay a visit to Apple’s UK Education Store or Apple’s US Education Store.
In the UK, You’ll need to use UNiDAYS to get access to the Apple Education Store. Signing up is easy – simply enter your email address and a password, then your name, institution, subject of study, year of study and course length. You’ll be required to prove your identity, then you’re away!
In the US, you won’t require any sort of login or ID to order from the Education Store, but Apple can request to see evidence of your student status at any point during or after the purchase and will charge you an additional fee if you fail to provide it.
Note that if you’re thinking of buying a Mac, not for yourself or your child but for the institution itself (for students to work on), then Apple has other stores for you to use. You can visit the Apple Store for Schools here and the Apple Store for Universities here. You’ll need to register with Apple before you can make any purchases. Alternatively you can call Apple direct on 0800 912 0207.
Shopping at the Apple Store for Education is much like shopping at the regular Apple store but with different pricing. It’s usually best to log on from your university network if you can, but be prepared for Apple to ask you for some form of official identification that proves you’re a student, the parent or guardian of a student, or a teacher, or otherwise involved in the educational establishment. Your student ID is typically the best way to do this.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to register on one of the verification sites, you can also call Apple, use Apple’s Chat online feature, or visit an Apple Store. The staff there will guide you through the process.
What discounts can I expect on the Apple Store for Education?
Apple doesn’t offer a stock discount ratio (such as 10 per cent) but instead sets different prices for each product range. The discounts are only currently available for Mac computers (iMac, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac mini) and iPads – there are no special discounts for other Apple products.
Mac student discounts
You can save hundreds on a MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac or iMac with Retina 5K display when purchased with AppleCare via the UK Apple Education Store here or the US Education Store here.
iPad student discounts
You can also get a small discount on iPads from the education store. Apple offers up to £59 off the iPad Pro, iPad and iPad mini 4. Take a closer look at the prices in Apple’s UK Education Store here.
The savings on the iPad in the US Education Store are quite small at up to $20. Take a closer look at the Apple’s US Education Store here.
There are no discounts on the iPhone, Apple TV or Apple Watch.

How to sign up for a student membership discount for Apple Music
Apple’s student membership scheme for Apple Music offers those in full-time education 50% discount on the music-streaming service’s subscription costs. (You can still get three months for free, but students will pay less after the trial period expires.)
In the UK this discount brings the monthly cost of Apple Music membership down from £9.99 to £4.99. But there are identical schemes in Ireland, the US, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Denmark, each offering half off the usual price.
To qualify for the student discount, you’ll need to prove that you’re enrolled at an eligible university or college.
The Student Membership tier is the third membership tier Apple has offered to UK consumers, alongside Individual Membership (£9.99 per month) and Family Membership (£14.99). Visit Apple’s site for more details and to sign up.
