NUS Extra Card


About NUS Extra Cards


As a Birkbeck student (FT or PT) you are automatically a member of the National Union of Students (NUS), which strives to represent the wellbeing and political interests of students from over 600 institutions across the country. This membership makes you eligible to purchase an NUS Extra card, the UK's most popular student discount card.


As one of the most widely accepted student ID cards, the NUS Extra card saves the average student £500+ a year ­­with exclusive member discounts both online and in-store. The card costs £12 per year, which means that for just £1 a month you could start saving immediately.


Top discounts include 50% Spotify premium accounts, 10% off grocery shopping at Co-Operative Food stores, 10% off clothing & accessories at and dozens more in a wide range of categories. The full list of offers is available through the NUS Extra website or you can download the app to track available discounts on the go!

How to Apply

Current students can follow this link to the NUS Extra website. You will be required to fill out the registration form, submit a recognisable photo of yourself and make a onetime payment for your card. Online discounts will be available from the moment your payment is processed; membership cards will be delivered to your home address, or alternatively you can have them sent to the SU and we will inform you when your card is ready to be collected from our General Office.


Be sure to collect your NUS card if you choose to have it delivered to the Students' Union. You should recieve an email from the NUS about your card being delivered to the Students' Union Desk on the Ground Floor by the MyBirkbeck Help Desk.
