The art of being a student, along with the balancing act of studying and having fun, is knowing how to find a bargain and score big savings. Learning how to budget might sound a bit dull but it is the key to making the most out of your time at uni. It will help you to have ALL of the fun, without all of the cost.

One of the biggest costs for any student is buying a laptop and any software that is required for their course, so finding savings for these can save you significant amounts of cash. Some software companies even offer completely free packages to students, so make sure you do your research before you go and buy a laptop or software. Here are some of the deals you can get as a student:
Microsoft Office – Free for students under Office 365 Education.
Apple – Different discounts for various products with the UK Apple Education Store.
Adobe Creative Cloud – 65% off Adobe Creative Cloud is available, ideal for students taking creative courses.
