How to legally get a NUS extra card even if you’re not a student

Yesterday my girlfriend reminded me that I wasn’t a student and laughed at the prospect of me getting a coveted NUS extra card. Needless to say, I racked my brains to their limit (not very high) and came up with a way to combat this palava of a situation and not only become a student on an ECareers course (accredited with NUS) for £10, also get my hands on the card itself for £13.50.

How to become a student and get the NUS Extra Card

It’s as easy as searching a discount site such as Groupon or Livingsocial for any ECareers course (normally around £200) and last infinitely until course completion (the joy of being a student forever) such Project and Quality Management for around £10-15 and once on the course go to NUS extra website, search E-Careers as your course provider, put your course in, go ahead and order the card for £13.50 for a year. You don’t have even have to attend your course but if you want to boost your career make sure you choose an Ecareer that suits you, more qualifications under your belt are always handy.
