Adobe student deals

If your course involves any kind of design, video or photography elements then Adobe Creative Cloud will be an excellent suite of software to have in your arsenal. Sadly this is rather expensive, which doesn’t lend itself easily to a student budget.

However, the student discount available is fantastic, at 65% off. You can get the entire package for just £16.24 per month compared with the regular price of £49.94 per month. Get Creative Cloud for Students here.

Amazon Prime for students

Being a student isn’t all about work. Sometimes you need to take a break from pouring over textbooks, a chance to relax, recharge, and binge watch Arrow.

One excellent way of doing this is through Amazon’s Student version of Prime. There’s a whopping six month free trial, and after that your membership is half price, so just £39. With Prime, you get access to the Amazon Video library for unlimited streaming, but you’ll also get free next day delivery and plenty more.

Apple Education Store

Apple has a good student discount programme available if you know where to look, including exclusive offers on the new 9.7in iPad with Apple Pencil support. You’ll find the Education Store here, and you can read more about how to buy from the Apple Education Store over on our sister site, Macworld.

Microsoft student deals

Microsoft has its own Student Store, which includes a decent range of deals and discounts.
