As a Build student you can enjoy a variety of discounts with a number of retailers.
Build does not issue student ID cards - you can join the library to get a library card, but this isn’t photo ID and won’t always get you discounts.
Unfortunately, Build students do not qualify for a discount on TfL, but we have a few partnerships set up that mean you can enjoy discounts in subject specific shops as listed below.

Student Cards (by NUS)
In 2018, TOTUM cards replaced the NUS Extra card. TOTUM cards are available for active students who study over 10 hours a week for a minimum of 12 weeks (or 120 hours total study time) and in addition these need to be OFQUAL registered. Build works with TOTUM to determine the courses that qualify.
