Foundry Enables Fast Student License Access integration now provides fast verification and licensing of Foundry’s Education Collective package, including Nuke, Katana, Mari and Modo – free to those enrolled at one of Foundry’s Education Partners.

Leading creative software developer Foundry announced that students can now access student licenses quickly using the verification system. The system simplifies and expedites student status confirmation, giving them quicker access to its Education Collective package, which includes Nuke, Katana, Mari, and Modo.

The student software suite is free to students enrolled in one of Foundry’s Education Partner programs. Students studying at institutions without active classroom licenses can purchase Foundry's Education Collective for a discounted price.

Students who finish a full-time course in the last six months can upgrade free or paid student licenses to a graduate license, which allows commercial use of Nuke, Katana, Mari, and Modo for a year following completion of their program, with additional discounted upgrades available afterward.

"This is great news for our students,” said Fortunato Frattasio, Learning & Development Manager at Campus d'Effets Visuels, Montréal. “This will allow them to access Foundry’s fantastic tools faster and at a more affordable price. As an Instructor and VFX Artist, I believe that being part of a strong academic program and having access to high-quality material is only part of what it takes to become a truly good artist. In order for students to really immerse themselves and to gain a deep understanding of their craft, they need to practice, practice, and practice. This new resource from Foundry can really help a student grow from a good VFX artist to an excellent one."

"This marks a pivotal moment in our ongoing commitment to empower emerging artists,” added Kalen Arnold, Senior Business Development Manager for Education at Foundry. “Foundry continues its dedication to accessibility and excellence in the educational and creative communities through advancements like and affordable pricing, empowering a new wave of creators with the tools they need to bring their visions to life.”
