AWS Educate provides educators, teaching assistants, and students with AWS credits that can be used to provide you with free access to AWS services. For educators, these credits can help to build your courses or skill up on AWS. Students can use their credits on AWS services for gaining hands-on experience with AWS and completing homework assignments, labs and projects.
Through application to AWS Educate individually, faculty and students receive some amount credit for the use of AWS services. These credits are renewable annually.
To get started, you must first have a personal AWS account. You need to register for an AWS account using your CUHK email address and must agree to the terms of service that exist between you and Amazon. Your AWS account is an account that you create at Amazon. And the University does not manage or control your individual user account.
With your AWS account, you may purchase a range of cloud-based web services. Once you have an AWS account, you may use the pre-loaded credits to acquire services.
