Learn some basic cooking skills. It's not that difficult to eat properly at university. You just have to spend a short amount of time working out the basics and mastering a few really simple meals, and you'll be able to feed yourself and save a whole loada cash in the process.

Use a highlighter to bring out any important sections or quotes (or at least what you think seems important in the 10 minutes you've spent swatting up on the topic). This means when you're in your seminar or exam, it won't look like you haven't done absolutely nothing.

Know when to call it a night! It's easy to get carried away on nights out. "Just a few drinks down the union" can quickly (and usually does) become much, much more. Knowing when to say enough is enough is actually quite a tough skill to acquire, and takes some good and solid will power. One way of attempting to control yourself is to go to the cash machine and only take out as much money as you’re happy to spend. When that runs dry, head home.
