A number of different licensing models exist within Miro, however there are two levels available to University members.

  • Anyone can register for a free Miro account
  • All staff and students are eligible to apply for a Miro education license

For full details of the differences please see miro.com/pricing/.

In summary, a free account is limited in terms of board sharing and the number which can be created.  The benefits of an education account is that you can share boards via a link or with a named individual, create unlimited boards and have the ability to back up or export boards.

To request a free Miro account please sign up with your email address at miro.com/login

All staff and students are eligible for a free education license. If you wish to obtain an education license you should complete the Apply for a free Education account form. In order to prove the University's accreditation status we have been advised that a screenshot of the appropriate section of the 'Check if your university or college can award a degree' page will suffice.
