    I'm not a student at NTU or UoN, so I just get the £90 per term deal.

    It depends on what bus operator you have, and what region of the country you're in. Look at what busses you want to get, and what company runs them. Then, go to that company's website, and look on there. In Bristol (for example), First do an academic year bus pass (I think they also do it for 1 term, not sure). Be careful though, as in Bristol there are two zones, and depending on where you want to go you may need a more expensive ticket (not sure if this is the case in other places). If you need to get two busses from two different operators, you may be able to get a bus pass that will do both, depends on where you are.

    Edit: Depending on the operator, you may be able to get student discounts on singles/returns. You may need to show student ID. Where I live, this is you university card (that you are usually given when you enrol), although I'd imagine some may ask for NUS, again, depends on the operator and location.
