What is NUS Extra?

NUS Extra is a student card offering you discounts from hundreds of retailers, restaurants and travel providers. It's supplied by the National Union of Students and you can buy it through your Students' Union.

How much does it cost?

An NUS Extra card costs you £12 and is valid for one year, giving you plenty of time to grab heaps of discounts. Also, of that £12, £4 goes to your Students' Union meaning with each card sold to an LSE student, LSESU can put more money towards activities, events and more - all for you!

But I already have a student card...

While waving your LSE student card around can get you some discounts, the NUS Extra card gives you far more. Take a look below for examples of just some of the discounts you can get. Also, the NUS Extra card can be used to get discounts on online purchases, which you can't get with your regular ol' student ID...

What about an ISIC card?

An ISIC - International Student Identity Card - is really handy to have if you want to prove your student status (and get the discounts you deserve) all around the world. Normally an ISIC costs you £12 but if you get an NUS Extra Card you can upgrade it to include ISIC for just £2.99! With both you can grab discounts while you're here in the UK AND while you travel!
