GitLab for Education
At GitLab, we believe that every student can contribute! Our mission is to promote GitLab and DevOps at educational institutions around the world. We aim to build a community of educators, learners, and researchers who are passionate about all things related to DevOps and GitLab.
Beyond providing free, unlimited licenses of our top tiers of GitLab (Self-hosted Ultimate or Hosted Gold), we want to be a resource for you to learn more about DevOps and connect with others who share your interest.
We are thrilled to welcome you to the GitLab for Education Program! The GitLab for Education Program has issued over 1.62 million seats of top-tier GitLab to over 800 educational institutions in over 65+ countries. We've come this far in only two years and are growing every day! As we continue to build on this momentum - our top goal is be the place to be for all things DevOps education.

There are so many different ways DevOps can be used in education. We’ve been taking note of a few of the really great ways we see DevOps entering both the higher education classroom as well as K-12 and less formal settings such as clubs and boot camps!
