How to become part of the Local NUS Discount Scheme

Do you offer a student discount? And want to make students aware of it?

Have you thought about offering a student discount?

The student market is the most lucrative amongst young people. Oxford has over 50,000 students, this means that 1 in 3 people who walk past your door will be a student. Why not showcase your discount, and your brand, to Oxford's student population by joining our NUS Local Discount scheme.

Offering a student discount could bring more business to you. With a reach of 18,500 students at Oxford Brookes and a reach of an additional 22,500 Oxford University, along with 9,500 at the Oxford and Cherwell College, the NUS extra Card can make Oxford students aware of your brand and the discount you offer. Nationally the NUS Extra card has a reach of 7 million. As students travel and visit friends, you could tap in to the spending trends of members of the national student population.

What is the NUS Extra card?

Created by the National Union of Students, NUS Extra is the definitive student discount and lifestyle card, brought to students by the National Union of Students. For just 312, students can access exclusive discounts and competitions – saving them money and enhancing their student experience. Since launching in 2006, over 1.51 million NUS cards have been sold.

What will you get if you participate?

You will receive: -

• A permanent presence on – Oxford Brookes Students Union website, with 7,000 unique visitors a month.

• A permanent presence on – National Union of Students website. The NUS Extra pages of receive an average of 1.1 million unique page views per month. That’s around 40,000 unique page views per day.

• Your company listed on a flyer to be handed out to students after they’ve enrolled. What will this cost? We cover our costs by charging an initial fee of £30 + VAT.

We want our students to benefit from the discounts you offer and for them to benefit the community by shopping locally.
