GWB Student Edition

GWB Student is free to university students!

To apply, you must be currently registered as a full-time degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student at an accredited university offering degrees in geoscience.

Apply to download the software on the application page. Once approved, a student license lasts for a year, after which you will need to reapply so we can re-verify your credentials.

Already applied? Please return to the application page to check the status of your application.

Student discounts for GWB short courses
