Back to Uni Essentials You Need In Your Life.

September has arrived and with it comes the return to uni for many of us. Heading back to your course this autumn means you may need to step up your organisation game - and we're here to help. From getting your studies in order, to making your routine as efficient as possible, there are a tonne of things that can help boost your organisation.

We've rounded up some of our fave essentials to get you back on track this academic year. Because while we all love a good bit of partying, uni isn't all about getting drunk. Not entirely, anyway...
