Be a Pro-Student

As students we all like to learn new technologies, love to work on different platforms and improve our knowledge and gaining experience which we cannot get during the lectures in university. Unfortunately most of the services, tools, platforms are expensive and the undergraduate may not able to afford those.

But luckily, there are some awesome companies that think about this problem and giveaway their products & services FREE for any university student while they are in university.


For applying these offers you must have a email address given by university. Most of the time its a academic email that have .ac (academic) or .edu (educational) sub-domain/domain.

Example : (Kelani Mail for University of Kelaniya Students)

If you don’t have university email please try to get one by contacting IT center of your university. However some offers can be get without this email, but you may need to send some documents and emails to prove that you’re a university student.

Now let’s find more about currently available students offers and their benefits.
