Students will need to have their status verified, mind you
Apple Music is set to launch a special low-cost membership package for students.
Available to anyone enrolled at an eligible university, the deal will give members a 50 per cent discount on Apple Music for up to four years. This means students in the UK will pay £4.99 per month to access the service, with the cost set at €4.99 a month in Ireland.
For those students who already have an account with Apple Music, changing over to a student membership is relatively easy both in the Music app or on iTunes on a computer.

According to Apple, the system will apparently be able to automatically confirm whether applicants really do have student status using UNiDAYS – a student verification technology provider.
The Apple Music Student Membership programme launched today, and is available in the UK, Ireland, US, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark and Germany.
