Back in June, we took a big step forward with JetBrains Academy and introduced a monthly subscription model. We are grateful to each and every member of our learning community for all your support and the feedback we’ve received! It has encouraged us to take another big step and introduce an annual subscription to JetBrains Academy! Now our users can take advantage of learning on the platform with an annual subscription for $249.00, which is equivalent to the price of only 5 months of the standard $49.90/month subscription.
As we announced earlier, everyone who registers at JetBrains Academy before January 1, 2021, will receive a 50% discount for the next 12 months of subscription after their trial period ends, making the price just $24.90/month. That 50% discount also applies to the first purchase of a yearly subscription, driving its price down to just $124.50.
Now we’d like to take some time and answer the most frequently asked questions regarding our subscription and pricing plans.
How long is the free trial period?
The default trial period is 7 days, but you can extend it by completing one stage of a project. This will add 1 month to your trial period. During that month, you can complete the whole project to add another month to the trial. These bonus extensions will be added automatically, so don’t worry about any extra steps.
Will my account be automatically charged after my free period ends?
It won’t happen automatically: in order to start the subscription, you’ll need to click Start my subscription on the Subscription page and fill out your payment information.
Will I have access to JetBrains Academy learning content after my free period ends?
All the code you write in your IDE while solving code challenges or working on projects is stored locally on your machine, and you can keep it without any restrictions. We are working on providing access to your learning history after your subscription ends. Please comment and vote for the corresponding feature request in our issue tracker.
Do I have to start the subscription right after my free trial ends to use the 50% discount I’ve got?
To redeem your 50% discount, you can start your subscription anytime before March 1, 2021.
Do you plan to introduce discounts for students or those coming from disadvantaged backgrounds?
We are working on special offers but we’re not ready to announce them just yet. If you have any difficulties with payment for the subscription but you want to continue learning with JetBrains Academy, please let us know by contacting email@example.com.
