Ever wondered if there’s a way to enjoy student discounts when you’re no longer in education?

You’d be forgiven for thinking that student discounts are exclusive to students, but did you know that you can actually access hundreds of deals and discounts from big brands with TOTUM Professionals?

At TOTUM, we know how difficult it can be to juggle the pressures of both work and study, which is why we launched TOTUM Professionals to help those studying part-time for a professional qualification (or those who are already members of a recognised professional body/trade union) to save as much as possible. 

The need to save money doesn’t just vanish once you’re no longer in education, which is why we’re here helping professionals to keep saving those £££s with discounts even when they’re no longer students.
