Beginning of a new term requires you to plan your expenditure, accommodation, and travel. It’s quite an exciting time for college freshmen or existing cohorts. Fortunately, a lot of places in the UK give you student discounts between 10% to 15% on tons of outlets for clothing, food etc. We have consolidated a list of the brands providing an opportunity for students to afford all sorts of stuff like daily necessities or luxuries.
Fashion and Apparel Discounts
If you are into fashion and enjoy shopping these discounts are definitely for you. Just click the logos and reach out to the reductions.
Food Chain Discounts
If you like to eat and maybe consider yourself a foodie, you will be happy to learn the discounts you can get as a student for food.
Leisure and Travel
If you are into exploring new places you should check out these discounts.
- Cinemas: Fancy going out for a movie? We have a piece of great news for you! Students get discounts and lower-priced tickets at two of the UK’s biggest cinema chains, Odeon, and Cineworld.
- Museums: There are lots of museums in the UK that you can visit and most of them are located in London. If you’re after a more cultural experience, you should know that some museums offer students discounts for their paying exhibitions. It is good to remember that most of the museums are free such as the British Museum, and Tate Modern. There are also special student offers for attractions like the London Eye, London Zoo. You should always check their website before going and have your student ID with you to be sure.
- Theatre: If you are into cultural activities you should always check for student discounts on theatre. The National Theatre in London offers a wonderful value entry pass for under-26s, which enables you to see a limited number of shows for no more than £5. The pass is free to obtain (with valid identification) and your first ticket is free. At the same time, the Royal Opera House runs a Student Standby Scheme whereby tickets to shows are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and cost no more than £10.
- Travel: Travelling around Britain is the easiest way and it is the oldest rail network around the world and probably one of the busiest. You can get pretty much everywhere by using the rail network. You can get the 16-25 Railcard, also available to mature students in full-time education, saves holders a third off most rail fares. It costs £30 a year or £70 for three years.
