-The place to start looking for a degree course or
suitable university to study at. As well as having useful information
about financing uni life.
-‘the free encyclopedia anyone can edit’, must be
the ultimate information/revision source.
Student Finance Direct
-Which to apply for grants and
loans for uni, start here.
What About Money?
-Free Financial Information for Young People from the Financial Services Authority.
– Student Account-Barclays’ student bank account.
-HSBC’s student bank account.
-Lloyds TSB’s student bank account.
-NatWest’s student bank account.
-Vouchers, special offers and discounts for various retailers.
-Great discounts for students on a range of activities
including eating out, and cinema. Cineworld 2 for 1 offer being one of the
best. Not available everywhere though.
-Cheap magazine subscription service for magazines for students. Including top titles such as New Scientist and BBC Top Gear.
‘Free’ iPod Shuffle
-Sounds unlikely doesn’t it, all you have to do is sign up, complete an online offer (such as a betting
company or free DVD rental trial) and then refer 3 ‘friends’ to do the
same. Still don’t understand how it can be not another scam? Here is a
snippet from a BBC Newsnight program on how it all started in America – Watch
‘Free’ Next Generation Console
-Same as above but 8 referrals needed for a Nintendo Wii, 10 referrals for an XBOX 360 Fully
Loaded and 13 referrals for a Sony Playstation 3. Be warned this is a pyramid system, you may need a little help from your friends in order to gain all the referrals required
Accommodation for students
-Looking for a flat/house or flat/house mates for next year, try this.
International Student Accommodation – Go Live It
-International Student Accommodation for Erasmus, Socrates, Year abroad, TEFL and other exchange students.
-Want to make cheap phone calls to landline’s, try skype, also make free calls to other skype users/friends for free.
-Probably the best social network available, once hooked it is sure to destroy hours of time.
