    Open University students can apply for NUS Extra card

    I thought I'd post this just to make sure that any OU students on here know that even though they aren't full time students they can still apply for an NUS Extra card and get all the discounts 'normal' students do.

    Cost is £10 and you get access to a whole host of discounts. They are listed on the website but some of them are;

    5% off Amazon, Play
    10% off Staples, La Senza, Superdrug, Miss Selfridge, Burton

    I know that most full-time students will already know this, but I'm sure a lot of OU students won't

    Moved to misc as this is info rather than a deal

    Part time students enrolling direct from uni can get the card too.

    also applies to part-time students at university.

    I'm not holding too much hope, but is there any way adult part time studious types can apply?!?

    I didn't know about part-time students at real uni's but think the problem with OU is you don't physically go somewhere to register so don't see the union stalls/posters etc. Also as you don't mix as much with other people then there is little chance of actually finding out.

    I studied with the OU for quite a while before finding out, which is why I wanted to share it with anyone else in the same boat.

    Is that studious types in general or adult part time actual students?

    TeeHee... I was a bit unclear there wasn't I?

    I mean adult part time students going to say night-school at local ed places be it a college or community centre.

    I know when I did a chemistry GCSE a while back I was told in the April as I was coming to finish that several others had managed to get one. Just never heard and didn't seem worth bothering at that late a date.

    Wasnt aware of this thanks

    i only go to college 2 hours a week, do u think i could get it

    I only know for definite about the OU but I think if the class/college has a students union that is part of the NUS then I would imagine so.

    Same as above. I should think it is worth asking.
