Membership card

Notice of discontinuation of the Open University Students Association (OUSA) membership card.

Your Students Association enjoys an affiliation with the National Union of Students (NUS) which enables OU students to purchase the NUS Extra card.  This is a fantastic student ID card with over 170 associated discounts available. With more and more OU students signing up to take advantage of this fantastic offer, our Student Officer Team recently took the decision to cease production of the traditional Students Association membership cards.
