Student discount

The Spotify student discount is currently not available in your country. We're always looking to launch it in new places though, so watch this space! Meanwhile, check out Premium Trials and other deals to see what deals you can take advantage of now.

With Spotify’s student discount, you can get 50% off a Premium subscription for a whole year! You can renew every 12 months as long as you’re eligible.

 12 months

Get started

Note: You are allowed only one account with student status at a time, and that status lasts for 12 months even if you cancel the subscription or close the account.

Happy studying!

Already have Premium?

That’s cool! The discounted rate will automatically begin on your next billing date. You can check the status of your subscription at any time.

Note: If you subscribed through any other company than Spotify (e.g. with your internet/mobile provider or iTunes), you need to cancel your existing subscription with them before signing up.


12 months, with the option to renew (we’ll remind you!) for another 12 months as long as you’re eligible. If you don’t renew, payments will proceed at the standard Premium rate.

You can pay for Spotify in lots of ways. Check the payment methods available in your country by clicking Subscription in the menu on the left of your account page.

You can't apply additional discounts to a student subscription. This includes any trial offers, and Premium for Family.

You can! If you’re enrolled with a university that’s eligible for our student discount, you can take advantage even if you’re abroad.

Your account’s country settings need to match the country of your university, and your payment method needs to have also been issued in that same country. For help with this, check out our guide to country settings.

If we’re unable to verify your student I.D., you won’t be eligible to claim the student discount. In this instance, any charges will show on your statement as ‘pending’, meaning no money has actually been taken.

Otherwise, try logging out and back in. Occasionally this is needed to force a sync of info between your device and our account system.

It’s also worth checking you’re logged into the right account.
