Apple Launches Annual 'Back to University' Promo in Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Brazil

Apple today launched its annual Back to University Program in Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, and Brazil, offering students and teachers free AirPods with the purchase of an eligible Mac or iPad.

australia back to university 2021
Eligible devices include the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, ‌iMac‌ Pro, iPad Pro, and iPad Air, including the new M1 models. Purchases come with free standard AirPods, but customers can upgrade to AirPods with Wireless Charging Case or AirPods Pro for an additional fee.

Mac and ‌iPad‌ models are available at discounted educational prices when purchasing through the educational stores for Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, and South Korea. Apple also offers AppleCare+ protection plans at a 20 percent discount.

To get the free AirPods, customers will need to add an eligible Mac or ‌iPad‌ to their carts, where the option to add the AirPods (or upgrade) will come up during the checkout process.

Discounts are available to current and newly accepted university students, parents buying for students, and teachers and staff at all levels. Sign up and enrollment verification through UNiDays is required. Educational discounts will be available for a limited time both online and in Apple retail stores that are open at the current time.

The Back to University program is identical to the Back to School promotion that launches in the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Europe in the summer months, so expect similar deals when Back to School rolls around in those countries later this year.

I think the word you're looking for is "Southern Hemishpere".
May I advise looking at where South Korea is on a map? :)

Australia, New Zealand, and Brazil has the school year start on February. It happens on March in South Korea, but since the promotion runs through March 16, I suppose Apple decided to just do the promotion at the same time.

It seems that Europe and European-influenced countries tend to have the school year start after summer holidays - August/September in Northen Hemisphere and January/February in Southern Hemisphere. But many Asian countries tend to do it at the start of the year or in Spring.
