In Australia, Mac purchases include a A$100 Apple Store gift card and iPad purchases come with a A$70 Apple Store Gift Card.

Qualified purchasers include students, teachers, and university staff members:
- A full-time or part-time student aged 18 or over with a current student union card or student identification card and studying at an accredited university or other Apple-approved institution; or
- A lecturer or staff member at an accredited university; or

Apple’s Back to Uni 2017 promotion is already live on Apple’s New Zealand, Australia, and Japan online stores and runs through the middle of March.
In the past, Apple has used App Store gift cards and Beats headphones as part of the promotion. Apple’s Back to School promotion usually runs around July in the United States.
