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:

gogroopie.com/dea…rse

2. Activate your voucher instantly on the eCareers website:

e-careers.co.uk/red…her

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.

Link: cards.nusextra.co.uk/?ut…tra

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;

gogroopie.com/dea…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:

nus.org.uk/en/…ts/

My few favs:

Co-op 10% off bill including alcohol!

50% Spotify subscription discount

25% off National Rail

Amazon Prime Student Membership (6 months free + £35 a year)

50% off Pizza Express

10% off Asos

The card essentially pays for itself.

25% off National Express rather than National Rail?

- Daywalker04

Also can be used at Cinema's to get student price tickets

- RCUK

Quidco 8.8% on GoGroopie - Tracking 35p for the £4 course.

- W1zz

If you sign up for Amazon Student, then you can use code APPRENTICE10 for a £10 off (credit goes to someone in this thread; don't know the t&c); thanks!

ISIC gives discounts at Apple (10%), Creative cloud (student rates).

Rubbish, unless somebody at NUSX has recently decreed that they shall activey strive to reduce their revenue from subs. We've been here many times before. There is zero requirement to buy any course nor be studying to apply and obtain an NUS card. The requirements appear to simply be the ability to upload a JPEG photo of anything and ability to throw £12 at a website. To prove a point: my cat has an NUSX card - complete with cute photo and uttlerly implausible but obviously acceptable-to-NUS name similar to Mee Yau.

If you have ever been a student before u can register for an NUS ALUMNI card, exactly the same discounts and you don't need to buy a course first. Just put your DOB in instead of your old student number if u can't find it and it works.

well that was easy.

1. Sign up to the free photography course at Shaw Academy (didn't give my main mobile number on that so don't get pestered)
2. Bought NUS Extra card on the site, used dates of Feb 17 to Feb 18, used my email address for student number (I think it asked me that anyway), and for qualification type etc I chose Other/Other and uploading my sexy passport picture .
3. Installed the NUS Extra app on my phone, logging in to that I was able to see the full details with picture of the card and my NUS card number.
4. Emailed amazon the picture to the signup email address mentioned in earlier posts. 10 minutes later I got an approved email from Amazon.
5. Signed up to Amazon using the link in the email (chose Other/Other again and kept dates the same)

Other half said "Cool I'm dating a student again!" (!) I've never been a student when we've been together

Do you need to send photos for the card?

How long is NUS card valid for?


Depends how much you want to bribe them with. Option of 1,2 or 3 years.

Just checked my old account actually and the renewal option is indeed there for £12 quid.

Will have to check what's on offer though.

Confirmed, you don't need to purchase any course. I just signed up and paid for the card after choosing a university of my choice and using my Gmail email address.
Price is actually £12 + £1.50 delivery though

I think they may check before printing with the place of study for proof, hence signing up for the cheap course

How'd you go around getting an ac.uk email?

Nah, it would be a DPA minefield if NUSX started attempting to casually extract that sort of info from UK educational institutions, plus the Subject Access Request workload would rocket.

Yes, signing up for Amazon there are two options, a) sign up with .ac.uk email address or b, send them a picture of both sides of your NUS, I did this already and have Amazon prime free for 6 months then £35 a year for 4 years

Still.... I prefer to stay as legit as possible incase they request proof. If they do, boom I am actually a student, here are my credentials, here is my confirmation email, all for a mere £4

it's tempting to get it for 50% off Spotify Premium, but then I honestly don't use Spotify all that much I suppose - couple of times a week at best.

Thanks. So whoever had NUS Extra Card before, Alumni card can be purchased without being a student or buying a new course? Do NUS still check any validations?

Awesome. Literally saved Hundreds since I joined NUS extra last year. Just do it for Co-op and Apple discount alone if these are brands you use monthly.

I need to check that Alumni option, cheers.

Signed up, thanks OP.

would this qualify you for purchasing educational versions of software like microsoft office student or cubase educator?

Good question pajo5

I am a proud student for over a year now, mastering the writing books for children . As it's my second year I've been offered 3year card. Great value. Heat!

So what do you put in the Education details when signing up for the card?

In order to purchase the NUS extra Alumni Card you must be an individual that has graduated from a course of study at a FH or HE institution in the past 12 months.


Best to purchase a new course unless you graduated in the last 12 months.

Keeps saying voucher not valid??

Just done the first two steps cheers for the heads up
