     There is a great range of prices in different clothes shops.  Many students shop in charity shops and many Students’ Unions have schemes for students to swap clothes – find out what’s happening at your institution.

    Daily travel

    If you travel the same route regularly it is usually cheaper to buy a season ticket.  These work in different ways in different parts of the UK.  Your institution will be able to advise you on where to find out what ticket is best for you.  Students in London can save 30% on travel with a student discount card.

    Long-distance travel in the UK

    You can travel cheaply by bus in the UK but journeys will take longer. Some companies offer very low prices if you book in advance.  If you are aged 16-25 you can save 30% on train journeys.  Train tickets bought on the day are much more expensive.  When you book in advance there are often limitations on when you can travel – be careful to check these or you will have to pay the full fare if you are on the wrong train.

    There are many ways to save money in the UK as a student. The National Union of Students (NUS) Extra card entitles you to many discounts across the UK.  The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) gives you discounts across 130 countries. The Student Beans website collates current discounts and short-term special offers for students.
