Participants receive access to all content available to regular subscribers. In addition, the FT and a panel of teachers will promote relevant FT articles, videos and podcasts in a weekly email service. The email will include an explanation of the relevance to the curricula.

No. You will only be able to create a login with the email domain of your school or college. Each login is for the sole use of a specific student or a teacher at your school or college and is not to be shared. We monitor for password sharing and will remove access for accounts that are shared.

The weekly email is an integral part of the Service and will highlight FT editorial content of relevance to the curriculum. Each student and teacher who logs in to using the school's email domain will receive the Newsletter at that email address, until they choose to unsubscribe from receiving the weekly email.

If an education institution has a mix of ages above and below 19, then please contact us, as we can offer mixed solutions - where the under 19's gain free access and there are discounted education rates for the over 19 population.

Free access applies to all students up to 19 years old in secondary rather than tertiary education, irrespective of what they are studying.
