TOTUM's Top Five Student Discounts: Getting Ready For University | TOTUM
Ben HaywardAugust 14th

If you're heading off to university this year, you’re probably starting to think about all the stuff you’ll need to take with you - especially if you’re moving city, or even country (check out our guide to studying abroad) - to continue your educational journey! 

From bags to laptops, kitchenware to bedding - and of course your student discounts - we’ve pulled together our top five brands (plus discounts) to help make sure you’ve got everything you need to get your 2022 uni year off to a flying start...

Three (Unlimited data, minutes and texts for £9.50 a month)


Let’s face it, nowadays you’re going to struggle to get far without plenty of data on your phone. 

From staying in touch with family and making plans with friends, to keeping up to date on your course timetables, ordering food, getting sucked into a YouTube hole and even downloading your textbooks, there’s very few things you don’t need a healthy supply of mobile data for in 2022. 

But while some data plans can cost the earth, Three are now offering the incredible deal of unlimited data, unlimited minutes and unlimited texts for just £9.50 a month!

Never run out of data again with Three and TOTUM. 

And it doesn't end there - TOTUM members can also get discount on Three's super-fast 5G home broadband! Set up a monthly rolling contract from just £24, meaning you can cancel whenever you like!

If super-fast speeds, truly unlimited data, 30-day money back guarantee, no landline, no engineer, near-instant downloads and 4k streaming all sound good, look no further than Three 5G home broadband.

Apple (Buy a Mac or iPad for university with education discount, get a gift card up to £120 + 20% off AppleCare+)


If there’s one item that will be absolutely invaluable at university it simply must be a decent laptop - and if you buy a new Mac or iPad with Apple's educational discount you get the added bonus of a gift card worth up to £120 that you can spend on all sorts of added extras including AirPods, Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard for iPad and more!

So, if you're in the market for a laptop, consider Apple’s thinnest, lightest ever notebook. The new MacBook Air delivers CPU speeds up to 3.5x faster than previous models and GPU speeds up to 5x faster. 

You're also getting the longest battery life ever in a MacBook Air, and you don't even have to worry about compatibility issues as there is now a Mac and iPad compatible version of Microsoft Office!

For students who purchase iPads, consider spending your gift card on an Apple Pencil to deliver the pixel-perfect precision that's great for drawing, sketching, colouring, taking notes, marking up PDFs and more.

Or how about a Magic Keyboard for iPad? It attaches magnetically, so there's no need for switches, plugs and pairing!

You could also consider some great applications - whether it's a hobby or you're going pro, students get five professional applications for video and music at a special price - Final Cut Pro X, Motion, Compressor, Logic Pro X and MainStage.

Get everything you need to set yourself up for success at university with Apple and TOTUM.
