1. The Schuh Student Discount
Excellent news my little learners, there is a Schuh student discount and it’s 10% off your trainers or footwear purchase either online at schuh.com or in-store and this is correct as of October 2018.
It’s quick and easy to get to get too. Just head to this special page.
You can validate your student status there and then through Schuh’s online chat. This is a great option if you aren’t an NUS pupil as they will be able to tall you whether you qualify for the 10% promo code there and then. Simples isn’t it!
Once you’re issued with the voucher code, just make your purchase online and enter the code at the promo code box during checkout and boom, like magic the ten percent will be taken off automatically.
“There is an alternative offered too. You can go from there through Unidays if you’re a member. Full details are on the student page too..”
2. Discount & Promo Codes & Vouchers
Even though we’ve shown you how to get the fantastic Schuh student discount of 10%, but did you know that this funky footwear retailer releases other voucher codes throughout the year?
Or that they could save students even more money using these codes than the standard 10% off their purchases?
What we have done is put together a helpful section below which lists all the ways to save at schuh.co.uk and if you’re in a shoe shop which includes all promo codes. This is regularly updated as of September 2018 as we keep our beady Squirrel eyes open and sniff out all the deals, as well as nuts and acorns of course! To get any live codes, please go to our savings section.
|Discount||Date Validated||Code Required|
|10% Schuh student discount||September 2018||Yes|
|40% off mid-season sale||September 2018||No|
|FREE Next Day Delivery||September 2018||No|
We’ve also included items like sales with links in the button which could also potentially get you more money off. These are always worth looking for and we like being a helpful Squirrel to help you undergraduates save more.
We also put any other ways to save money in the section above, so if any will help, just click through on the green button and make those savings!
If there is a voucher code available, just click through, make your purchase on schuh.co.uk and when you come to the online check-out, just enter it in the promo codes box and bingo, your discount will be applied. The lovely thing is there is no NUS card validation either. The easier the voucher the better in our book!
3. Does Schuh do a Unidays or NUS Discount?
With lots of different student discount schemes now available in the UK it can be hard to find exactly what students are entitled to. Not to worry, the Squirrel has done all of the hard research to help you answer these questions.
Does Schuh do a Unidays Discount?
We have great delight in informing you that there is a Unidays Schuh code for online purchases. To get it, head to this page on schuh.co.uk, follow the instructions and you’ll get a Unidays code to use at the online check-out.
The standard reduction is 10% off full price and sale trainers, shoes and boots. Result.
Also, make sure you check out our savings section at the top of this guide for even more clever ways to save.
Does Schuh do a NUS Totum Discount
The excellent news is that yes, there is a NUS Schuh discount of 10% off all purchases at this funky footwear shop.
To get it at schuh.co.uk, you need to go to this page and follow the instructions and prove your NUS student status. It’s quick and easy and you’ll be issued with a promo code to get your 10% reduction at the online checkout.
“If you are in store then you can just show your NUS card to get the money off. Easy peasy”
For clarity, there is no specific Schuh NUS Extra discount, but the fact that you have a normal card means you qualify for the 10% off as described above. Hurrah!
If you find yourself in a Schuh store in the UK, then show your student id including NUS card – and you will also get 10% off.
However, as you’ll find out below there are more ways that you can save. Also we advise shopping online, basically you don’t have the pain of going into a store, finding your dream shoes and then realising they don’t have your size in stock!
And the fantastic thing is, your NUS card is valid proof to get the 10% student discount code.
But wait dear students, what’s that, you want to see if you can make more discounts? Fair enough. Keep reading and this guide will show you how to shop the sales for even more bargains.
4. Schuh Sales – Students Save More
One of the best ways for students to save even more is to purchase those must have boots or trainers when there is a sale on. The best place to see is the homepage. They will always promote their big sales on here.
If there aren’t any reductions explicitly mentioned here, then make sure you check out the sales page. This is a permanent page on schuh.co.uk and the fab news is that the Schuh student discount will get you an ADDITIONAL 10 percent off. Whoop whoop!
Here at SDS we keep an eye out for the big Schuh sales and alert students when they’re on through our newsletter, Facebook and Twitter pages so make sure you sign up. We also list them in the savings table in the voucher codes section so make sure you check back to see what sales are on.
And you will get your 10% Schuh student discount on top which makes a fantastic overall saving!
The big sales are at the following times of year so if it’s not quite started yet try and hold on until they hit and then you’re likely to bag a bargain:
- Black Friday and Cyber Monday
- Boxing Day Sales (typically start online on 24th December
- Winter Sales stretch from the end of December into January with better reductions coming at the beginning of the year
- Easter & Spring Mid-season Sale
- Summer Sales
- Mid-season Autumn sale
If it’s not sale time though don’t worry as there is a special sales page which is here on schuh.co.uk. They constantly have a small amount of fabulous shoes, boots, trainers and sandals on this page and include some great brands such as Vans, Converse, Dr Martens and Fila.
Take a browse and see if you can bag a bargain.
5. Get Free Delivery
Additional postage costs are always a pain – I mean you go to all the fuss to save money and then get whacked with delivery! No thank you!! So you’ll be delighted to know that at Schuh, students can get free standard shipping by spending a mere £20.
There have also been times when Schuh have released a discount voucher to get free delivery. These are often short-term, meaning they only last for a short period of time.
The Squirrel is good at sniffing these out so we’ll put any live codes in the table above.
6. Store Overview & Top Picks
British footwear retailer Schuh is a firm student favourite for its fantastic range of branded footwear spanning boots, heels, trainers and formalwear. Their stores are full of colourful inspiration and new shapes and trends, and once inside, it can be difficult to leave without a new pair in your hand or on your feet!
Many shoe shop brands have come and gone from the British high street in the last decade, but Schuh has really stuck around.
Much of this success is due to the vast range of brands that it stocks, some of which we will cover here. Schuh stocks men’s, women’s and kid’s shoes, spanning almost one hundred household brand names.
In some cases, the physical shops are split in ‘Schuh’ and ‘Schuh Kids’ for larger locations. If you can get into a store, it is worth it as the brand are highly reputed for the high quality of training for their staff – these guys really know their shoes… and your feet! You can also find a small range of bags, laces, hats and socks in-store.
Sports shoes and trainers are available from Puma, Adidas, Nike and New Balance, as well as the classic Converse canvas shoes that everyone has as a wardrobe staple.
For boots, you can browse ranges by the UK-cult like brand Dr Martens, workwear label Timberland and the ultimate girly comfort in UGG. Sandals are taken care of by Birkenstock and quirky heels by Irregular Choice. And that’s not all – you’ll also find Fred Perry, Clarks Originals, Kickers, Rocket Dog, Red or Dead, TOMS, T-u-k, Skechers, Havianas, Hush Puppy and Hunters all available in store and online.
The range online is vast, so if you do have a local Schuh store near you, you may not find everything you’re looking for. However, you can order online direct to your local shop and try on your purchase while there to take advantage of free postage (it doesn’t cost the company anything extra, as they’ll just bundle them in with the shop’s usual delivery).
It’s often assumed that Schuh is a German brand because of its name, but it was actually started by a British man in Scotland before growing throughout the UK. The name was inspired by a shoe industry magazine called ‘Schuhe’ but is pronounced just like the English word ‘shoe’.
Branching out to use their footwear expertise to help charity, Schuh started the ‘Schuh Welly Exchange’ in 2009 for the summer’s festival season; trading festival-goers old shoes for pairs for wellington boots. Festivals visited so far include Rockness, Bestival, Global Gathering, Creamfields, Oxegen, Camp Bestival and Summer Sundae.
You won’t find a better selection of the latest trends in footwear or a better bunch of accessories anywhere on the high street; so, shop smart and shop Schuh.
Top Student Buy: Hunter Stone Fleece Welly Socks – £20.00
There’s nothing worse than bare feet in wellies, and all too often the uncomfortable interiors of wellington boots wear through normal socks and you end up with toes sticking out. These stone fleece specialist extra-thick socks are designed specifically for use in wellies and will make even the oldest of welly boots (Hunter or otherwise) toasty warm and snug. The tops fold over the top of your boots for the ultimate fit and you’ll be so comfy you’ll want to stay in them all day… come rain, shine or snow!
Top Student Buy: Schuh Black and Green Shoe Horn – £1.50

A must-have for occasions when you’re faced with wearing a pair of shoes you don’t find the most comfortable or the easiest of fit, you’ll soon find yourself lending this out to all and sundry! Job interviews, nights out, formal dinners and family occasions; this less-than-£2 bargain fits them all. You may also know a shoe horn as a boot trumpet or even a brogue cornet… ooh-er!
Top Student Buy: Converse All-Star Oxford Lo-top Canvas Trainers – £50.00
Everyone has a pair of Converse, and you’ll soon see why when you wear a pair for the first time. They go with everything and suit every situation, and at £50, aren’t too pricy for a staple piece of your wardrobe. Often though of as just flimsy canvas, instead a vulcanised rubber toe cap lines the whole shoe with double-stitching and a soft fabric lining for comfort. These shoes are iconic and will last you for years to come.

Schuh was founded in 1981 by Sandy Alexander who opened his first footwear store in Edinburgh after having become frustrated with the lack of great shoe brands to be found outside of London. Its mission was, and still is “to provide aspirational but accessible fashion footwear sold in a unique and exciting retail environment, at prices which represent value for money, sold by friendly and knowledgeable staff”.
The company was briefly bought out before regaining its independence in 1990 and staying that way ever since. Today, there are over 118 Schuh shops across the UK and the head office is still in Scotland, with a press and design office based in London. In 2015, the brand opened its first non-British store in Germany and has continued to spread its love of quirky value footwear all over Europe since. Schuh is still entirely profitable but splits its sales between its bricks-and-mortar stores and its online shop, with a heavy investment being continually made into its online offering and technological developments.
