Went to the gym with a mate and watched in horror as he got 50% off with his student card! How did you get that I asked, you finished uni 2 years ago!
He was studying towards his AAT accountancy qualification and qualified for an NUS card. I had a look when I got home, and this was true. It seemed that because I am studying with the Chartered Insurance Institute I also qualify. I am not sure what happens when you reach chartered status as there are always other professional qualifications to study for. I guess therefore that you could be a student for a number of years!
Even if you are not part of a student union or university have a look and see if you qualify. It only costs £10 and you will no doubt make that money back with the discounts included.
