A. Yes, we offer student discounts. To claim this discount and to help us verify with your university/college, you must provide evidence that you are currently a student. The ID must include your name, university/college name, years of study and D.O.B. In most cases a scan of your student card together with your programme of study or enrolment form should provide all we need. Please contact us at this email address with the necessary documentation.
A. After 30 days you can request a new discount code, however, you will need to show your student identification again to verify your student status, this ensures you still qualify for the discount. Also, we cannot guarantee the pricing will be the same as pricing of products can be subject to change as newer versions are released.
