1. Is there a Schuh student discount?

Excellent news my little learners, there is a Schuh student discount and it’s a 10% reduction off your trainers or footwear purchase either online at or in-store and this is correct as of February 2018. Woohooo!

It’s quick and easy to get to get too. Just  head to this special pageYou 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 and if you’re in a shoe shop which includes all promo codes. This is regularly updated as of February 2018 as we keep our beady Squirrel eyes open and sniff out all the deals, as well as nuts and acorns of course!

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!

3. Is there a NUS Schuh 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, 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 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
  • Summer Sales

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 amount of fabulous shoes, boots, trainers and sandals on this page and include some great brands such as Vans, Converse, Dr Martens and Fila.
