APPLE gadgets are pretty expensive – but there are some extremely generous student discounts on offer.
You can bag hefty savings on an iPad or MacBook if you know where to look, so read on for all the need-to-know details.
How much Apple Student Discount can you get?
Unlike some other retailers, Apple doesn’t offer an exact percentage discount – price cuts will vary depending on the product you’re trying to buy.
Also, Apple only offers student discounts on Mac computers (MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac and iMac Pro) and iPads (iPad, iPad Pro and iPad Mini 4).
That means if you’re trying to blag a cheap iPhone or Apple Watch, you’re out of luck.
The maximum discount available on a Mac is £270, and the discount cap for iPads is £93 – but this will be lower if you get a cheap model. Mac discounts are roughly 10%, while iPad discounts are about 5%.
How to claim Apple Student Discount
First, you need to make sure you’re eligible.
Brits will need to use Unidays to access the Apple Education Store, which is where you can buy products with a discount.
You can sign up for Unidays here – you’ll need to enter your email address, name, place of study, subject, year of study and the length of your course.
You’ll also need to prove your identity with some kind of ID.
Once you’re approved with Unidays, you’ll be able to access the Apple Education Store below:

Apple Student Discount – are there any catches?
There aren’t really any catches when it comes to Apple student discounts.
As long as you’re approved through Unidays, you should be able to bag a discount.
You’ll also be eligible for free next-day delivery on all products, assuming they’re in stock.
However, before making any purchase, we’d recommend shopping around at other sites.
It’s entirely possible that other retailers might be offering better deals than Apple’s own prices. So double check to make sure you’re not paying over the odds.
