Do you want to jump aboard the music streaming scene? Or can you already not live without Spotify? Having access to tens of thousands of songs is hugely appealing but £9.99 a month can seem a bit pricey. Thankfully, you can get a massive discount if you’re a student and heading back to school this September.
Whether you’ve already signed up to Spotify Premium, have been dipping your toe in with a free Spotify account, or have no account at all, you can take advantage of student discount.
The good news is that Spotify student discount gives you Premium for £4.99 – a stunning 50% off.
Unlike some student offers, any student can get a discount with Spotify. You don’t need a TOTUM card from NUS, StudentBeans or even UniDays, the most frequently used discount provider.
Instead, Spotify uses a third-party system called SheerID that requires you to enter your university details. SheerID then confirms this with your institution. Here’s how to complete the full Spotify Premium student discount sign-up:
(If you already have Spotify Premium and want student discount, head to “Profile” then “Subscription” on the Spotify website and follow the instructions from step 4 onwards.)
- Sign up for a free Spotify account (skip this step if you already have a free account).
- Head to the Spotify homepage and click “Upgrade” near the top-right corner.
- Click “Try Premium Free” (or “Get Spotify Premium” if you’ve had a free trial before).
- You’ll be taken to a payment page but first click “Change Plan”.
- Scroll down to “Subscribe to Premium for Students” and click “Get Student”.
Now onto the stage where you need to verify your student status:
- You will be asked to fill out some details about yourself and your student status.
- Click “Verify” when all fields are completed.
- Once you are verified, you’ll get an email with instructions on how to finalise your status and set up payment details.
