    Okay so I'm going up to Coventry to stay with my mate on halloween and we're planning to go out, but you need 'any card that proves you're a student' - I don't go to University yet so don't have a student card. Would a Unidays ID work? I would use my sisters to go along with her ID but just not sure if they would accept Unidays rather than an actual ID card.

    Doubt they would accept it as unidays can be used by students not in uni, for example I have used unidays throughout highschool when I was aged 15,16,17 etc so it doesn't prove you're over 18, it only proves you are in education

    Do you reckon it still wouldn't work even if it says the institution is a University?

    It's not even worthwhile trying

    As has already been said, non-Uni students have it ( like me!) and it's probably the most fake able and it doesn't really prove your student status, and Student cards usually have anti-forgery measures on them

    Obviously I don't know what night you're going to but if its just to prove you're a student and not that you're over 18 I doubt they'll be particularly strict about it so it should be fine.

    They won't accept it as Id, if anything because it's halloween they'd be more strict on ID everywhere

    Could've misunderstood but seems like they're using it just as student ID not proof of age?

    Do you mean for student discounts or entry to nights out at the student union? Because if it's the latter then students can usually +1 non-students.

    In Sheffield where I live, I used UNiDAYS for discount entry at one club, but tried it and it wasn't accepted at another.

    Meanwhile I used to work in a cinema, and we wouldn't accept UNiDAYS as student ID.

    Each club will make their own rules, but if I were you I wouldn't risk it

    Yeah so I'm just wanting to use it as proof I'm a student not as actual ID, I have my provisional for that

    I think it's entry to a student event at a club??? I'm not really sure, but I'll ask my mate about the plus one thing thanks!!
