About GitHub Education for students

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

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 Education student benefits. Your GitHub Education student benefits and resources are all included in GitHub Education, a portal that allows you to access your education benefits, all in one place. For more information, see "Apply to GitHub Education as a student" and GitHub Education.

Before applying for GitHub Education, check if your learning community is already partnered with us as a GitHub Campus Program school. For more information, see "Sobre o Programa do GitHub Campus."

If you're a member of a school club, a teacher can apply for GitHub Education so your team can collaborate using GitHub Team, which allows unlimited users and private repositories, for free. For more information, see "Apply to GitHub Education as a teacher."

Once you are a verified GitHub Education student, you can access GitHub Education anytime by going to the GitHub Education website.
