Getting Azure

To follow the courses, you would need an active Azure Subscription to experiment. Depending on who you are, you may use one of the following types of subscriptions:

University-Provided Subscription
Some universities might have special arrangements with Microsoft to obtain a subscription, which is then distributed to all students. You should check whether your university offers such a subscription.
Azure for Students
All university students are eligible for Free Azure for Students subscription. To get it, you would need to verify your student status. You can also get Azure for Students as part of GitHub Student Developer Pack
Azure Free Trial
Azure Free Trial is an offer available to everyone, where $200 credit is provided for one month, with some more services being available for one year. A credit card is required to validate your identity.
