Higher education students and educators can get a set of free AirPods with the purchase of select Macs and iPads, which is the same deal that went live in the United States and Canada in June and Australia and New Zealand in January.

Qualifying devices include the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, 24-inch iMac, Mac Pro, Mac mini, M1 iPad Pro, and iPad Air. The low-cost iPad, iPad mini, and refurbished products from Apple are not eligible for the promotion, but all educational purchases are available at discounted prices through the dedicated EDU store in each country.

Apple customers who make a qualifying purchase can get the second-generation ‌AirPods‌ for free, or upgrade to ‌AirPods‌ with Wireless Charging or AirPods Pro for an additional fee. Students are also eligible for AppleCare+ at a 20 percent discount.

Apple's ‌Back to School promotion‌ requires verification through UNiDAYS in many countries, with full terms and conditions available on the promotional pages for Apple's country-specific websites.

Back to School deals are available to students and educators in countries that include the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Russia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore, and Thailand.

What I like is you don’t even really need to be a student, just purchase on the promo page. At least that’s how I got my MacBook Pro and then Beats over ears ?. I wish it was AirPods back then…
In the UK you have to be verified as a Student, either through a student members site called UNiDAYS or via Apple support with a university ID or acceptance offer. No tricking the system here.

Campaign is live till October 11 in Sweden. Guess that means that updated MacBook Pro's come after that date.
Not really. They can always release earlier and not include in the promo. Just like last year new iPad Air
