Most schools forward the code to new students and their parents as part of BYOD communication.
If you as a student or parent did not receive a code as part of the BYOD information, you can request it from your school via email, or send us an email with the admission/transfer/school confirmation and we will return the code to you immediately.
After entering the code on our website, you will be redirected to the online store of the commercial partner, where you can place your order as usual. Please note that for legal reasons you must be 18 years old to make a purchase. If you are younger, your parents can make the purchase for you.
