Spotify roll out student price-plan

Irish students can now get the service at a cheaper price

From today, students can subscribe to Spotify Premium for 50% off in Ireland. This offer has been in place in the US, UK and Germany for some time but has arrived into 33 other countries, including Ireland today. 

Students can subscribe to the Premium service for just €4.99 a month. 

The offer is available to students "for every year of their student life". To sign up, students need to head to and authenticate their eligibility with SheerID. SheerID is a leader in authentication and eligibility verification software. Spotify has partnered with them to help administer and support the programme. 

The benefits of Spotify Premium include:

  • Uninterrupted music without any ads
  • Instant access to over 30 million songs whenever you want them – just hit play
  • Take your collection offline – listen to songs and playlists  anywhere without using up data
  • Better sound quality with Spotify Premium

While Spotify does not have many 'exclusive' deals with artists, it was recently announced that under the new agreement, Spotify will restrict new albums from Universal artists to premium subscribers for up to two weeks.
