EE offers a 20% student discount along with a 500MB safety net each month. That’s half a GB of free data every month just to keep you from going over your data plan, and 20% off your monthly tariff, every month. This deal is available to new and existing EE customers.

New customers and existing customers who are eligible for an upgrade can get the 20% discount and the 500MB safety net, along with six free months of Apple Music. You'll need a code from "UNiDAYS" when you sign onto a new plan or an upgrade, which you can get from here.

If you're an EE customer who doesn't qualify for an upgrade yet, you can still get the 500MB safety net by texting "STUDENT" to 150. When you are ready for an upgrade you can sign up for the 20% off monthly discount. See more on EE student phone deals here.

You have to buy a new phone specifically on the O2 Refresh tariff, then sign in via "UNiDAYS" to verify you’re a student and to get your discount code. Then simply text O2 your code at 61202. You can find all the info to O2's student mobile phone deals here
