Any details of where you did this? I presume you need to sign up to a place that provide you with an email address

Have never studied in the UK. Any free courses online that make you eligible?

I signed up a couple of days ago with an old college email account I had with no issues. This morning, Amazon just refunded me for my Prime membership I had already fully prepaid for 12 months without even contacting them!

Where do you sign up for a UK online course that gives you a .ac.uk email address

Yes you verify via the college email, not your amazon account email.

I sent them an email with a photo of my old plc student card ( it is dated for this year but I dropped out) all from my personal email address and got approved. It's the email address that's linked with your Amazon account.

How are people signing up with alternative college email addresses from DCU/UCD? The only option I see is .ac.uk email address

Edit - I just tried the email anyway and it worked. Thanks OP

Thank you OP. I had to email them, but they have given the trial to me and I was already a prime member.
