Spotify has announced the launch of Spotify Premium for Students in Australia, which will allow all registered students to enjoy all of the benefits of being a Premium member on the music streaming platform for half the usual price.
Spotify Premium for Students means uni students in Australia are now able to purchase a Premium subscription for $5.99 per month.
The Premium offering allows members to enjoy uninterrupted and ad-less music, instant access to over 30 million songs, better sound quality, and the option to create their own offline music collection.
The offer is open to students for every year of their student life, and is available from today in Australia, as well as 32 other countries.
Spotify has partnered with authentication and eligibility verification software provider SheerID to help administer and support the program.
Alex Norstrom, Spotify’s chief premium business officer, said: “We are really excited to launch Spotify Premium for Students all over the world today – now the biggest and best student offer of its kind in the marketplace.
“Students are among the most passionate and engaged music fans, and we’re proud to be able to give millions of students the opportunity to soundtrack their lives with Spotify Premium for half price.”
