Here’s a list of some of the best ones to get you started!

10% off outdoor wear and equipment

Can’t afford to go on holiday during the long summer break? Don’t fear. Camping is a seriously cheap way to get away and weather permitting (yeah we know that’s a lot of permitting!), the UK offers some picturesque and affordable camping locations (think the Lake District or Cornwall for example).  


packing for camping

With a 10% discount at Blacks, Millets and Ultimate Outdoors you can get everything you need for your next camping trip, or festival without breaking the bank! All you have to do to get these student offers is register with UNiDAYS to verify that you are in fact a student. 

33.3% off rail travel

If you’re spending an exorbitant amount on transport you should definitely consider getting a 16-25 Railcard. The card (that will only cost you £30 for the year) will give you a guaranteed 33.3% (or a third) discount on all your rail travel. Less money spent on travel, means more cash for fun nights out – so what are you waiting for? 

Free Office 365

The only thing better than a student discount is getting something completely free! 

That’s what this deal from Microsoft offers! If you register using a valid school address you can get Office 365 completely free. 

That’s more – Microsoft also offers a 10% student discount on loads of other products, so you can get your computer needs sorted without breaking the bank.

And if you’re a full- or part-time enrolled student at university, then you can buy Office for a measly £59.99 for four years (a huge discount as it’s usually that much per year!).

50% off on self storage
