We’re here to help the creatives of tomorrow

We want to help you get your brilliant work out to as many people as we can. That’s why we are offering every arts student in America free access to our premium WeTransfer Plus service.

What is our Education Initiative?

We are offering every arts student in America a year-long free WeTransfer Plus account.

We want to support students in their work, by helping them transfer large files without disrupting their creative flow. Many students at schools like NYU, Columbia, Harvard, Stanford, SVA and more have already taken advantage of our offer. So don’t be shy – use the form below to add your university to the list. It’s completely free because we want to support the creative community that has always supported us!

Showcasing the best

At the end of each school year, our editorial team will select one student’s project to be showcased on WeTransfer to millions of users around the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

When would I use WeTransfer?

WeTransfer is the simplest way to send your files around the world. So we are here to help, whether you need to share photos or videos with your classmates, or get your mid-term project to your professor on time.

Why is WeTransfer different?

With WeTransfer Plus you can send up to 20GB at a time and enjoy 100GB of storage. You can also personalize your profile to present your files in style.

What does this cost me?

Nothing, zilch, nada. This project is about giving back to the creative community so neither you nor your school will be charged at any point. We are starting in America, because it is the most expensive country on earth to study. You’ve got enough to worry about.

Can I use other services?

Of course; WeTransfer will complement any other sharing systems you currently use. While these often focus on syncing, WeTransfer is more transactional, sending files from A to B.
