Are you currently a student or a teacher, and living in the UK?
If so, you may be eligible for an education discount on our store.
Many items on our store have an educational discount applied. These will be clearly marked on the product page. For example...
If you're viewing our store as a guest or have a regular account
If you have a verified education account
'Pro Tools' and 'Sibelius' education licences do not require you to have an education account to purchase. Instead you will have to confirm your education status directly with 'Avid' after you make your purchase.
When Mediaspec first began supplying educational establishments in the UK, audio technology courses were in their infancy. Now, they are standard for schools and colleges across the country. Mediaspec has supplied technology solutions for the past 21 years to both large-scale facilities and technology students working in their bedrooms.
We regard students as the future and we provide support to them through our annual student award programme and our online student discount scheme. We also work to bridge the gap between education and industry by providing work placements for students. This all fits with the Mediaspec ethos that no client is too big or too small for us to care about.
We are committed to providing the best possible pricing for students and education staff through our Mediaspec Education Discount Scheme. Any UK based student or education staff can qualify, and you simply need to apply through this website. This process is very straightforward, and once accepted, you will immediately be able to log-in, unlocking the door to many discounted products.
If you wish to make a discounted educational purchase you will need to provide proof of educational status. This can be in the form of an education purchase order. In the case of a student or staff purchase, then a staff/student card or letter from the institution proving enrollment or employment during the period you wish to purchase your goods is required.
Mediaspec provides annual prizes to educational establishments across the UK to acknowledge the efforts of students working in audio engineering and sound design. Since 2012, The Mediaspec Award for Outstanding Achievement is one way that we give back to the industry, as well as support emerging talent.
To Mediaspec it is important to help young people develop their passion for audio technology, and having their efforts rewarded can be crucial to growing their confidence.
