Apple Music Student comes to Zim. Students get half price.

All the University/College students who use the Apple Music streaming service have reason to celebrate. Apple Music has extended its Student Membership to 82 new countries, including Zimbabwe. Right now the Student Membership is available in 79 countries. The other 3 countries will get the feature on the 26th of February.

So, what’s the deal?

You can also use Apple Music on trial before committing to a paid plan. University Student plan allows students to halve their subscription. The membership drops to $2.49 per month from the standard $4.99. The student discount is also available for 48 months which is the duration of a 4-year degree. Eligibility is verified through UniDAYS, a student validation service that confirms if you’re enrolled in a University/College.

The other African countries supported include Botswana, Kenya, South Africa, Egypt, Mozambique, and The Gambia.

If you are currently not on Apple Music it’s advisable to use the service on a trial basis for 3 months before committing. You can also check out other music streaming apps before committing. Keep in mind with the current foreign currency situation, it might be difficult to pay for these services locally.

    Thats a sweet deal – not a student myself but I do use Apple Music on my Android phone+Windows PC and even at $4.99 it’s worth every cent for me.
