    Or you can get it via HSBC or Natwest with a student account. These really should be given out for free though.

    but you got to be 18 to get the account... (well, the natwest one you do: not sure about HSBC)

    You have to be 18 to get the HSBC one but I actually got a NatWest one last year (admittedly they weren't offering the railcard then) when I was 17. HSBC wouldn't give me one until I turned 18.

    I correct you: you're wrong.

    Students can get 30% off season tickets (weekly, monthly, annually) on London tubes, buses, trains, DLR and trams.

    You need to get a student photocard from the uni administration.

    Young Persons Railcards do not provide any discount on London Transport tickets, except overland trains but even then I think you have to travel after 9.30 in the morning or something.

    If you're living in Zone 1 and will generally walk to and from college, a pre-pay Oyster card would be the best investment but if you use the tube (or trains) every day, get a weekly or monthly Student Travelcard.
