I'm going to uni in September but I'm a bit worried about proving my age while going out or buying things (I've turned 18 in June). I can't drive so I don't have a license and I personally refuse to carry my passport around everywhere due to being an international student and the pain I know I'll go through if I miss place it ect. I have a international ID card but I've heard that its very unlikely anyway will accept that haha.
What have you used in the past? Will a student card or something work?
You will get a student cards. All the local establishments should recognise it. I am sure you will be fine.
Alternatively, just buy a provisional licence for £34 and that'll be valid for 10 years, since it's the most widely recognised form of ID alongside a passport, and your student card may not have your DoB on it.
Thanks guys! I'll look into getting a provisional driving licence. Kinda just looking for a card like item that would be easy to carry around (unlike a passport)
