Free Unity Licence Grant programme now available to all educators

Unity has expanded its Unity License Grant programme to all levels of education to include colleges and universities.

Already available to primary and secondary schools, now any qualifying academic institution or education programme can apply to receive free Unity licenses for in-class use.

The licenses can be used in support of learning, teaching, training and research and development activities.

Unity for all

Since the launch of the Unity License Grant Program in March 2015 nearly 77,000 licenses have been granted.

By expanding eligibility, Unity aims to further support students looking to get into the games industry or those training for other relevant digital fields.

You can find further details about the scheme here.

With one foot in the indie developer side, and the other foot in lecturing, this is great news. It always seemed odd that Unity had a free version, but not for educational use. Especially when many software companies have free educational versions of their expensive software.
