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 tell you whether you qualify for the 10% promo code there and then. Simples isn’t it! Or you can do it through Unidays too. 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 per cent will be taken off automatically.

A couple of useful things to know:

  • The discount is valid for all college or university students
  • If you have been accepted by Unidays you can get the promo code
  • You can use the discount on sale items

“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.”


Even though we’ve shown you how to get the fantastic student discount of 10%, but did you know that this funky footwear retailer releases other voucher codes and offers 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 and if you’re in a shoe shop which includes all promo codes. This is regularly updated in 2020 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, offers, please go to our savings section.

10% Schuch Students Discount 10% 31/12/2020
£5 Off Bags £5 30/09/2020
70% Off in the Schuh Sale 70% 30/09/2020

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.


If there is a voucher code available, just click through, make your purchase on 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!


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.


We have great delight in informing you that there is a Unidays Schuh code for online purchases.

“If you are in one of the shops 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, listing offers, sales and discount codes on those Dr Martens or whatever takes your fancy.


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 and the fab news is that the student discount at Schuh will get you an ADDITIONAL 10 per cent 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 (the summer sale is often good), Facebook and Twitter pages so make sure you sign up. We also list them in the savings table in the codes section so make sure you check back to see what sales are on.

And you will get your 10% Schuh standard discount on top which makes a fantastic overall saving!

The big sales are at the following times of the 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 They constantly have a small number of fabulous shoes, boots, trainers and sandals on this page and include some great brands such as Vans, Converse, Nike, Adidas, Dr Martens and Fila.

Take a browse and see if you can bag a bargain to go along with your student discount @ Schuh.

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 are also next day delivery options.

There have also been times when Schuh has released a discount voucher to get free delivery and Schuh discount codes. These are often short-term, meaning they only last for a short period of time.

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 brick-and-mortar stores and its online shop, with a heavy investment being continually made into its online offering and technological developments.

Fun Facts:

  • The first store opened in Edinburgh’s North Bridge Arcade in 1981
  • The stores’ founder, Sandy Alexander, noticed a lack of fashionable footwear retailers outside of London
  • Schuh’s mantra is – “To provide aspirational but accessible footwear, sold in a unique and exciting retail environment at prices which represent value for money”
  • Schuh has 118 stores in the UK and Ireland
  • It was 2450 stores in the US!
  • Schuh is German for SHOE!
  • Schuh has won many awards including the Scottish Fashion Awards 2013!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. “Are you able to combine a student discount with a standard discount code, schuh offers or voucher code?” Schuh are a super generous retailer and more often than not, they do let you combine your student discount with other valid sales, discount codes and promotions (including any voucher codes) at the times. Obviously that is great news and really allows you to save big.
  2. Are there restrictions on items or sale items you can use your student discount in? I am looking at some Hunter Wellies and other top brands but not certain if they are restricted?” Again, you’ll need to check online or in-store, but generally not. They allow you to use your discount or any promo code on any item. Again, it’s great!
