As an OCA student you can gain access to discounts with retailers and other services across the country. All you need is your OCA Student Card, and student number. The card itself will be accepted by many retailers, just ask in store.
You can also sign up for accounts with UNiDAYS and Student Beans. Retailers post offers through these sites which you can take advantage of. All you need to sign up to these sites is your OCA email address; as part of the registration process OCA will verify your account.
In addition, as a fully fledged student, you’re also part of the National Union of Students (NUS) and entitled to a TOTUM Card, formerly known as an NUS Extra Card. This you have to pay for (you can buy a 1,2, or 3 year option), but can also act as an ID card, and gives you access to circa 200 discounts including Amazon Prime.
Apart from retailer discounts, you can also gain discounts on software and other packages to help you as a student. 65% off Adobe Creative Cloud, Apple Store for Education offer discounts on a range of Apple hardware, and you can get Office 365 free along with discounts on Microsoft hardware.
