If you are a student you can get a free six months trial for Apple Music and once your trial expires, your subscription will be half the usual price: £4.99 a month for unlimited streaming!

To qualify for an Apple Music student subscription, you must be a student studying for a bachelor degree, post-graduate degree or equivalent Higher Education course at a University (or College if you are in the US). You can only get this deal if you don't already subscribe.
