Digital Student Card

One of the perks of being a student is being able to get discounts on food, clothes, health and beauty, gadgets, days out, travel and more. Below are just a few ways to make the most of your entitlements.

Student ID Card

Your West College Scotland Digital Student ID Card is the official student card issued by the college. This contains details of your course, mode of attendance, date of birth and your approved Photographic ID and is built into the MyDay app.

This is your proof of student status and may be accepted by retailers and service providers for student discount.

At the end of your course, or if you leave the course before completion, your Digital Student ID Card will update to show that you are no longer a student of West College Scotland.
