Distance learning and UK Partners
As part of its environmental sustainability strategy, Staffordshire University has signed up to the One Planet Pledge and has committed to achieving a Carbon Net Zero position by 2030. As part of this Pledge the University has changed its approach to providing physical student cards.
As a Distance Learning or UK Partner students*, we will not automatically print a physical card, as its primary purpose is access to campus buildings and facilities and as identification on Staffordshire University Campuses. You will have access to a digital Student ID on Beacon.
However, should you intend to come to our campuses you may request a physical card.
Distance Learners you may request a physical card using our Distance Learning Student Card Request form.
UK Partners you may request a physical card via your UK Partner Institute lecturer.
By reducing our physical card printing we are reducing our environmental impact.
*Stoke on Trent College, Stoke Sixth Form, Newcastle under Lyme and Stafford College students will have a card printed automatically, due to their locality and requirements on campus, which will either be provided via their College or collections details will be provided directly to their University email.
