Balsamiq Community Discussion

Educational Licenses


I’m a lecturer at an Italian Master of Mobile Marketing Communication held at Fondazione Accademia di Comunicazione in Milan (

This year I started to demonstrate and use balsamiq as a tool for wireframing mobile apps with my students (I am already a registered user with a license) but as you can understand it’s complicated to ask students to buy a license which they’ll be using only during the Master, which is by the way longer than the 1 month trial period). Is there an education license they can download?

Thanks in advance
