GitHub Education

GitHub Education

Learn to ship software like a pro.

There's no substitute for hands-on experience. But for most students, real world tools can be cost-prohibitive.

That's why we created the GitHub Student Developer Pack with some of our partners and friends: to give students free access to the best developer tools in one place so they can learn by doing.

Get the Pack

Before you receive access to the offers, we'll need to verify that you are a student.

Teachers, researchers, faculty, and staff are not eligible for the Pack, but can get free and discounted access to GitHub.
