The Financial Times is now offering free online subscriptions to students aged 16-19, their teachers and schools around the world, and to colleges of further education in the UK.
We believe reading the FT will help in study, essay writing, exams and broadening knowledge to improve performance in interviews for university and employment. It can also support those studying English including through audio articles.
Teachers and staff can click here to register for the service, allowing them to read the FT on school premises.
They and their students can use the same link to see if their institution is already signed up and to request an individual account, allowing access online and to download the app for use from home and on mobile devices. They will also receive weekly email newsletter updates.
We encourage teachers and students to follow us on Twitter @FT4S, share articles and explain the reasons you like them. You can also comment beneath articles.
We have specific articles with suggested questions and classroom discussion points picked by teachers in subjects including economics, business, geography and politics. We have mapped FT articles and sample questions to the A level economics curriculum with Core.
We regularly host competitions for students, including a schools economics challenge video with Core. We run Young Economist of the Year with the Royal Economic Society, and other writing competitions with the Political Studies Association, the Royal Geographical Society, the Bank of England, Chatham House the World Bank, the London Institute of Banking & Finance and Ofcom.
We welcome teacher and student advisers. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and with queries and suggestions.
The articles beneath the story on this page provide a selection that is useful for schools, but any student or teacher who is registered can read the full range of FT content.
As well as news, analysis and comment, you can read our explainers, watch video and listen to podcasts. You can see a collection of FT videos useful for schools on Youtube. Our resources include a searchable graphics hub.
