National Union of Students

Resonance also recognises the National Union of Students (NUS), a confederation of around 600 individual students’ unions. Its core values are equality, democracy, and collectivism, and its mission is to shape the future of education to help create a fairer, more prosperous society.

Students will be encouraged to form the Resonance Student Union (RSU) to promote and support the opinions of all students, ensuring that all voices are heard with representation at the board level.

In addition, the RSU would plan social events and extra-curricular activities and encourage the foundation of student clubs and societies.

NUS members receive the TOTUM card, which offers over 200 UK student discounts, including 10% off at ASOS and 25% off Odeon cinema tickets. In addition, you can access 42,000 discounts in 130 countries, including flights and hotels, with an International Student Identity Card (ISIC), free with your TOTUM card.

For further details, please visit the NUS website.
