As the new academic year begins, freshers up and down the country will be settling into their university courses.
Greater Manchester is home to five universities which welcome a new wave of freshers from the UK and abroad each year. Many will be getting used to a new city and living independently for the first time ever.
Others will be readjusting to university life after a long, hot summer, with final year students preparing to tackle their dissertations. No matter which stage of higher education you’re at, there are plenty of amazing deals to take advantage of.
From fashion to food and technology to university essentials, here’s our round-up of the best student deals and discounts…
