For those who don't know how to become a student, and become eligible for an NUS/NUS Extra card, here's how in 3 simple steps:
1. Purchase the £4 eCareers course, found on GoGroupie here:https://www.gogroopie.com/deal/uy3izid71/Introduction_to_Microsoft__New_Features__Online_Course
2. Activate your voucher instantly on the eCareers website:https://www.e-careers.co.uk/redeem-voucher
When scrolling through the T&Cs, only accept the FIRST box, or you will have to wait 7 days before you can access your course.
3. Once your course has been activated and assigned (you will receive an email) navigate to NUS and sign up as a student. Be sure to select eCareers as your place of study, the card itself should cost £12.00.
NUS may check your eligibility with eCareers, so make sure your data (Name, DOB etc.) match up!
An alternative is to purchase this Shaw Academy course for £1.99 saving you £2.01 on this deal;https://www.gogroopie.com/deal/zzvlnfkim/Choice_of_23_Online_Courses_for_just__1_99_?
obviously if you go for the shaw academy course, you must pick shaw academy as your place of study when signing up with NUS.
List of discounts here:https://www.nus.org.uk/en/nus-extra/discounts/

50% Spotify subscription discount
25% off National Rail
Amazon Prime Student Membership (6 months free + £35 a year)
