WHO WE ARE

The website was made on the basis that there is more to the student life than intense university lectures, exams and finances. There is a whole lifestyle to learn and it can be very hard to master every stage of it. Thats where we, Student PANDA, come in.

We want to share our experiences, as current students and graduates, on how we dealt with everyday life and come out on top. From the day you decide you want to go to university, to the day you’re comfortable in your graduate job, we hope to keep you informed, entertained and aware of your own possibilities.

We are 4 The Students, By The Students.

Last Day Revision Tips

It’s the last leg of the race and there is still some preparation needed to bring home that first class. As crazy as the next 24 hours are going to be, remember not to stress yourself out. Make sure you prepare yourself to max out on that last minute prep, and get your head in the game. We’ve got your back with some tips you should know before tackling that last bit of cramming.

Dealing With Exam Stress

End of year exams are make or break for your final marks. Stress levels are high and all distractions need to be shut out whilst you prepare. Well, this is the myth we keep telling ourselves to push ourselves through, but let’s take a step back to asses it all.

Dealing With Procrastination

Staying engaged through a lecture or concentrating on writing an essay will be a steep challenge, and let’s face it, social media is a BIG distraction. However, overcoming this challenge is one of your roles as a student, not having the intention to do the work but rather knowing how to be productive enough to actually do the work.

Quick Guide to Tax & Student £££

There is a lot of confusing terms, topics and rules out there and most importantly who is this tax-man taking my money? It was confusing to us at first as well don’t worry, but here’s a quick overview of some of the terms you’re going to be hearing from here on out.

Saving on Uni Materials

Physical textbooks, writing pads and sketchbooks seem a thing of the past, especially in the modern digital age. Everything you need can be gained for sometimes more than half the original price online, yet so many students pay away a good amount of their student loan to have these necessities.

Student Bank Accounts

Did you know that you’re really popular (with banks). They all want your pots of gold, otherwise known as a maintenance loan. After you initially set up with them, they will provide as many useful services as they can and hope that this will bring about a loyalty between the both of you that will keep you with them and you’re (hopefully) growing income.

There are loads of banks to choose from and it can all get a bit confusing but we’re here to help you with all the commotion and confusion.

Other Financing Options

Student Finance, even though it may not seem it, later on it will be a big help towards funding yourself through university and keeping you afloat. So its no wonder that 93% of students said that they used student finance in our 2017 Student Survey.

PANDA SAVING TIPS

When it comes to saving, there’s thousands of millions of ways to do it and things you should learn about how to save. As much as we all want to splash out our funds on every party or event we go to, your bank account survives by those savings.

Holiday Savers

It’s time for a holiday and you need to grab the best deal you can so you can still afford to pay rent when you return home. We’ve all tried to budget on parts of our holiday to make sure we don’t over spend or so we have extra spending cash abroad, but the initial flights can be a big hindrance on that plan.

Homemade Pericos

Pericos is a traditional Colombian breakfast, often served with hot chocolate. It’s different than your typical breakfast! Give it a try!

Ways to Make £££

There are many ways to make some extra £££, some easier than others but at the end of the day you are regaining some funds. What will make you get the higher end of the income will be experimenting and gaining experience in that particular category. We have listed...

Start Your Own Buisness

If you’re a bit low on money while in university, and don’t have the time or can’t commit to a part time job, there are still loads of other ways to make some spare cash. Check out our tips below for some ideas of how to make some more money.

Yoghurt Chicken

In the mood for some nice chicken with a lemon twist, try this recipe. better than getting some awful chicken shop grease!

Tomato Rice Soup

Do you like Ketchup? Do you like Tomatoes? Do you like eating things that are red? Try this!

The Ebay Master

eBay is a great tool to free your house up of all those useless items you don’t need at all. Oh and you can make some money as well. So all in all, it’s pretty worth one evening of writing descriptions and taking pictures.

Tax Free ISA’s

Well firstly, what is that funny word? ISA, Individual Savings Account, is a tax-man free savings account. All income is taxed and that also includes interest on savings, however, as ISA’s are tax free you can keep all your pennies safe from the tax-man (up to £15,240).

PANDA Budgeting Guide

Most students have never budgeted before, in fact, we found that only 33% of students have used a budget plan. Make a plan before fresher’s week drains you of everything you have! Don’t know what to budget for? Don’t worry, the PANDA team have you covered! We’ve put together a list of ways we budgeted through university to help you out.
