From takeaways to gym memberships

The TOTUM PRO card is available to current active students aged 16 or over, studying full or part-time in Further or Higher Education.

For further information about TOTUM PRO, including a full list of the deals and discounts they have on offer, visit the Totum website.

Ask about TOTUM PRO when you enrol, or, if you are already studying with us, please email our student support team.

Study advice and resources

We understand that the difference between A levels and studying at university can feel like a huge leap. We have worked together with UCAS to create a range of study skills guides to help you make this transition as simple as possible.

NEC and UCAS believe everyone needs to invest time in learning the skills needed for independent study, if they are to become confident students and get the most out of their course.
