College kids in nearly two dozen new countries are now eligible to access Apple Music’s 30 million-song library for half the normal sticker price. The student plan, which was introduced in May, has been rolled out in Canada, Japan, France and China, among other markets.
Student pricing was already available in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand and Denmark. New territories cover all parts of the globe, including South America (Brazil), Africa (South Africa), Asia (Hong Kong), the Persian Gulf (UAE) and Europe (Sweden, home of Spotify). In all there are now roughly 32 places where students can get Apple Music for cheap.
How cheap? In the U.S. and Canada, the price is $4.99 per month instead of $9.99 per month.
