Freshers Week is approaching for many students across the UK as a new semester begins at universities and colleges.

There’ll be many events to go to before lectures start, but another benefit of this time is the discounts students can save on many items.

If you want to save a bit of money on food and drink especially you can certainly make the most of it.

Apps from UNiDAYS, to Student Beans to VoucherCodes, all offer plenty of options.

You have to sign up to these apps to access the discounts, which come in the form of a code you can use at restaurants and food delivery apps.
