For as long as I can remember Apple has offered special pricing to students and teachers on a new Mac and iPad with their Educational pricing offer. Apple has a brand new deal this time to their professional apps for Mac.

Apple is now offering all 5 of their professional industry-leading creation apps for a discounted price in a new bundle called ‘Pro Apps Bundle for Education’ to students, teachers, and faculty staff.

The collection of apps includes Final Cut Pro X, Apple’s professional video editing software and Logic Pro X, an advanced music production application. Plus three other apps including Motion 5, Compressor 4, and MainStage 3 all of which work alongside Final Cut Pro X or Logic Pro X.

All apps are designed by Apple and are optimised to run on MacOS – including new features for the new MacBook Pro with TouchBar.


The bundle by far is one of the best deals I have seen come out of Apple and while pricing does vary country to country in Australia you save A$727 while in New Zealand you save over NZ$400. To put it another way, the usual full cost of Final Cut Pro X alone is more than the entire cost of the new bundle.
