Please read the letter shared with parents about the 1:1 laptop program for the 2017-2018 school year. You may find it here.
As a student, your child is eligible to receive and educational discount if you choose to purchase a new Mac laptop for your child.
There are a few options for you to get the educational discount.
- Order from UAS Partner JTRS
- The second option is go purchase online from the US Apple Ed. Store if you are in the US this summer. There are no software/hardware restrictions as the Apple Warranty is global. The software is the same on the computer – just remember that your child will get MS Office for free from the school in fall. When on the Apple Ed site, select the closest school to your location when the Apple site prompts you to choose a school.
- Our Apple Education partner, JTRS, has worked with us to provide families with a discount for MacBook and iPad purchases. We are pleased to inform you that this discount is available for the entire UAS community, not just our students. If you chose to order through JTRS, please follow the instructions in this pdf file to sign up and order the device for your child. Please note, this facility is available all year round but if you require the device before school starts in September then please ensure that you place your device order before July 25.
- The fourth option is to wait until the fall. Virgin Megastores has regularly given the educational discount in the fall to K-12 students. Your child would need their ID for the discount.
If having the student id is difficult, you can print off a report card (it has UAS letterhead) and show an Emirates ID. The stores just need some sort of proof that she attends school.
