Student discounts

Student life comes with a lot of pressure, but it can also come with lots of benefits. There are loads of discounts, deals and offers out there to help you get through your studies. We've put together some of the best.

Student life on a budget

Student life doesn't have to mean going without. There are plenty of companies out there that want to help you save on their products. Everything from takeaways and the weekly shop to clothes and days out are covered, so it won't be a struggle to balance the cost of living with your studies. 

Most of the discounts you'll find below are available online, but studying in London means you have access to a much wider range of activities than students in other parts of the country. Whether you're headed to Oxford Street for a shopping spree or taking a trip on the London Eye, there is a saving for you. 

Totum

Totum (formally NUS Extra) is the go-to student discount card for anyone studying at a UK university, with popular deals including a 10% discount at the Coop and a six month trial of Amazon Prime Student

Totum has offers on eating out, uni essentials, travel, finance and more. Plus you can get a card for up to three years including a PASS accredited proof of ID that's accepted throughout the UK.
