About GitHub Education for students

GitHub Education offers students real-world experience with free access to various developer tools from GitHub's partners.

As a student or faculty member at an accredited educational institution, you can apply for GitHub Education benefits, which includes access to GitHub Global Campus. GitHub Global Campus is a portal that allows the GitHub Education Community to access their education benefits—all in one place! The GitHub Global Campus portal includes access to the GitHub Education Community, industry tools used by professional developers, events, Campus TV content, GitHub Classroom, and other exclusive features to help students and teachers shape the next generation of software development.

Before applying for an individual discount, check if your learning community is already partnered with us as a GitHub Campus Program school. For more information, see "About GitHub Campus Program."

Using GitHub for your school projects is a practical way to collaborate with others and build a portfolio that showcases real-world experience.

Everyone with a GitHub account can collaborate in unlimited public and private repositories with GitHub Free. As a student, you can also apply for GitHub Student benefits. For more information, see "Apply for a student developer pack" and GitHub Education.

If you're a member of a FIRST robotics club, your mentor can apply for an educator discount so your team can collaborate using GitHub Team, which allows unlimited users and private repositories, for free. For more information, see "Apply for an educator or researcher discount."
