Qt Educational Licenses For Students and Teachers

Are you a student or a teacher?

Would you like to get access to Qt’s commercial, professional-level features at no cost?  

If you answered yes to both questions, we have some great news for you: the new automated Qt Educational License process and license packages are here!

What is a Qt Educational License?

The Qt Company offers educational licenses for students and teachers free of charge. Educational licenses should be used for learning purposes only (any commercial use or distribution is prohibited). 

With an educational license, you'll receive access to Qt’s commercial features and will be able to:

  • Create functional and visually appealing user interfaces (UI)
  • Import your existing UIs from a variety of design tools, such as Figma, Sketch, Adobe XD 
  • Get access to full Python, C++ and JavaScript, HTML5, and the QML framework 
  • Create applications and Raspberry Pi-based devices 

The license packages come with the Enterprise version of Qt Design Studio and the Professional version of Qt Device Creation (only Raspberry Pi support). You'll be able to access both Qt 5.15 LTS and Qt 6 (all releases). 

The license term is 12 months. After expiry, you will be able to renew your license annually by following the same process, as long as you still have a valid educational email address. 

You can find more information about the license on the Qt Educational License page.

Anyone with an email address from a known educational institute can automatically get an Edu license by going to the Qt Educational License page. All you need to do is fill out the form, verify your email address, and you’ll be ready to go! Detailed installation instructions will be sent to your email.

I already have an active Qt Educational license – what should I do? 

This change does not affect currently active educational licenses. You will only need to follow the new process upon renewal.

The use of License Managers and manual processing done by the educational institution are no longer needed to obtain a license. Each student and teacher can apply for a license and download and install Qt themselves. 

Information about the new process is available in detail on the Qt Educational License page.
