The student ID card you received for free at uni or college used to be what you could use in shops but that has now been scrapped. You will still receive your free student id card but unfortunately  there is not many places offering a discount now  with just that card. It has moved on to nus and isic and now even better nus has combined with isic. You are now being charged for your discount card so that nus can bring you these deals and also help student life easier. The price is good because you will make back what you paid for it if you use it a lot, and you can get ahead with your studies and have less money worries.

1, 2 or 3 Year Cards

Choose from a 1 year card for just £12, a 2 year card for £22 or a 3 year card for only £32. Many discounts are online only so you can’t get them without your NUS extra card!
