Student Beans Membership free with OpenLearn Open University Free Course

You can get registered with Student Beans for 1 year for free by uploading screen shot as Open University on the student beans website. You have to register for the free OpenLearn Open University course. Also, register for Student Beans. The screen shot needs to be of the course title and your name. Once you are logged in to your OpenLearn course account, its there.

This would be great Do you just need a screenshot of your profile? Where it shows my name, saying OpenLearn Profile underneath, and on the right it shows the name of the courses in progress? I'm guessing we can pick any course? I quite like the look of some of the courses.

Hot if it works.

Worth a try.

I can see the sudden influx of screen shots causing some concern though :-)

you need to click my open learn profile once logged in and then click in progress and then do a screenshot of it.

it worked for me, I'm registered with student beans. student beans confirm by email.

Did it take the 3 days their automated message suggests?

and I saved the screen shot as a jpeg file in photoshop. but you can also save it in Microsoft paint etc.

Original Poster

it took me less than a day to confirm by email.

Attached screenshot to the application but the send button is still greyed out.

I work for Student Beans, we won't be accepting OpenLearn screenshots, thanks for the heads up!

I received the confirmation email at 10:23 am and I done the screen shot about 8 to 10pm.

Nevermind. downloaded the app and tried it that way.

I clicked the square thing on the website for screenshot uploading and then it said they received it.

try on the website rather than the app.

and if its causing a problem try another browser like firefox.

or you can try emailing them the screenshot and giving your details.

I have latest firefox and latest internet explorer.

Mine was rejected saying I need one of the following:

Institution student card
Acceptance letter
Academic transcript

Also:

"Documentation will only be accepted as proof of your student status if it contains your full name, your institution’s name and a date that indicates your are currently enrolled as a student at the present time."

Maybe others will have more luck.

I do have an NUS card but through an institution that doesn't give an ac.uk email address so haven't been able to sign up to student beans, which would be useful

Good luck to others.

Neither did I. I picked Open University as I know they don't accept NUS (I had looked in the past). I clicked manual. But it did get rejected. You must have been lucky (or me unlucky!). Enjoy your membership

Thanks for the confirmation. I hadn't noticed this post. Guessing ACCA isn't covered under Student Beans either (unless studying towards the Oxford Brookes BSc perhaps)?

Well I've given it a try!

Any decent discounts on here that you wouldnt get with the NUS card?

Ive had a rejection email saying....
Unfortunately the image you sent us is unclear or is missing information.

Your pending verification has been wiped so you can now upload new proof.

Please log in to your account and upload a scan or photo of one of the following:

Institution student card
Acceptance letter
Academic transcript

I suspect there will be a string of those today.

Signed up legitimately as I am studying for a degree with the OU - I already have UniDays and this one has some nice discounts too so thanks for making me aware
