Render Metahuman without the Unreal rendering engine for student projects

We are currently in the production of a film with our students, who are very enthusiastic about the software.
As far as we can tell, apparently since a very short time (2 weeks) everything has to be rendered in Unreal, otherwise you are not allowed to use it anymore.

This new rule greatly limits the production plan of the current project.Therefore, we would like your permission to render your figures outside of your render engine.
Do you think there is any possibility of having a special permit for student projects?

That would be ideal. Thank you so much!
