    Hi in September i will be going to Greenwich University, and so i will be able to get a student oyster. Not entirely sure what the similarities and differences are between the cards, but on the TFL site it says the student one will suit more frequent travellers more.

    This is all slightly confusing in parts haha, was looking for advice from anyone who can point me in the right direction. I will of course get the railcard for the other train journey.

    Thanks

    It only gives discount on travelcards. So it depends on your usage if that suits you or not. I didn't get one as I didn't need it with the timetable I was on.

    You can load your other railcard onto a normal oyster to which you get discount on only off peak fares (including the price cap). This is what is currently suiting me.

    I reckon then that the standard Pay as you go will probably do me then, ill only do the odd trip to central London and other places i may occasionally want to go, and the railcard will come in handy when i get the train home. Cheers
