Why can’t I find my place of study?
If your place of study doesn't appear in the list, give the following tips a go:
- Try typing the name in a different order i.e. Sheffield University instead of University of Sheffield.
- Check if your school or college has recently changed its name (to an academy for example).
- Check if your place of study is affiliated to the NUS - you can check on the list here.
- If you’re studying with a professional/distance learning provider they may not appear on the application without a voucher code code. Please contact your place of study to see if you are eligible for a voucher code to verify with. You can then enter this on the 3rd step of our application to verify with.
