Addicted to social media? Use KeepMeOut to block certain distracting websites.

Educational websites for students


You’ve probably heard of Reddit, but have you heard of UReddit? UReddit hosts courses and lessons created by the public and can help users to learn languages, scientific principles or even PHP programming.


Edx is one of the world’s leading MOOC platforms. MOOCs (massive open online courses) are offered for free to anyone wishing to learn.

Cooking websites for students


RecipePuppy allows you to search for recipes based on the ingredients you already have at home. Lazy students, rejoice!


Learn how to make anything with Instructables. Easy to follow step-by-step instructions, online classes, and a vibrant maker community.

Health websites for students


WebMD allows you to check your current health status using its ‘symptom checker’. Although this resource is great for hypochondriacs, it doesn’t replace the knowledge of a real doctor – go offline and visit your university’s health centre if you’re really concerned.

Shopping & selling websites for students


Well-established consumer-to-consumer site EBay allows you to buy, sell or auction off almost anything, including clothing, electronic devices and antiques. Could come in handy if your student budget needs a boost, or if you want to find some bargains.


Gumtree advertises jobs, second-hand goods, properties and services for people. If you’re a student, it can be a good place to search for part-time job opportunities, look for accommodation, sell things you don’t need any more, or even swap goods or skills..

Money-saving websites for students


Groupon offers daily deals on things such as spa days, fancy restaurants and city breaks. Not exactly the essentials of student life, but a good way to treat yourself at the end of a stressful exam period, perhaps.


Just one of many student websites offering discounts, UniDays lists thousands of student discounts and offers around the globe. It’s free to join and also available as an app.

Other useful resources for students


An offshoot of Rap Genius, Lit Genius is a place where scholars have formed a community to annotate poetry and literature, both classic and recent. Extremely helpful for English literature students.


TED hosts thought-provoking talks given at events all over the world on the core topics of technology, entertainment and design – but in fact covering pretty much every aspect of human experience. The TED site is where you can find all the videos of these talks. Another good procrastination device, but you may also find some inspiration for your next essay.


Although your tutors will tell you never to reference Wikipedia in assignments, the collaboratively edited encyclopaedia project can be a very useful tool for early-stage research into your assignment or project.


Bartleby publishes classic literature, poetry, non-fiction and reference texts free of charge.


Similarly, Project Gutenberg provides free online access to texts whose copyright has expired; so far it’s digitised more than 45,000 texts.
