METKA wants all the student to have equal access to the nationwide student discounts. As the first Student Union in Finland we are releasing the Student ID to all Metropolia students. The digital student ID is launched today 21st January 2019 as a part of Tuudo app and all the students can use the digital student ID, which grants them Kela, VR and Matkahuolto student discounts.

Members of Student Union METKA can also find METKA’s member ID from Tuudo. This ID grants the student the Student Union member benefits: Zone Sport Services, discounts from events and a selection of METKA’s member discounts. For the first time you can also find METKA’s services on a smart phone app!

Tuudo also means a faster way to get the digital student card. Tuudo has direct access to Metropolia’s PEPPI register and the digital student card is active as soon as the student installs the Tuudo app. The plastic student cards are still valid and will be – as long as the card has the Student Union member sticker. METKA’s contract with Frank, which was METKA’s previous partner delivering the digital student card, ends in 31 May 2019. Until that date the Frank App works as usual.

Tuudo App is available for Android and iOS devices from the app stores.
