Wednesday, 5 Jun 2019
Nowadays everything is Instagrammable, which is a blessing in disguise. Yes, a few seconds spent scrolling on Instagram can send you into minutes and hours of procrastination away from your university work, but you can also make your Instagram scrolling useful, by having a look at posts with tips, guides, hacks, and educational topics. We’ve put together our pick of the top 10 Instagram accounts that can be useful for students to follow for informative posts, with the exception of a couple of non-serious and funny ones that bring a bit of humour.
All students know that feeling of being skint but wanting to spend money on everything but the things that a responsible adult needs to spend their money on, right?! This account posts money-saving hacks for all the things we love and want, but don’t really need. They also run competitions, giving away things like alcohol, food and shopping vouchers, and other freebies.
As a student, most things need to be done on a budget, including meal planning. Many students mistakenly go for instant meals as the most affordable option.

The meals shared on this account are from the award-winning One Pound Meal books by chef and presenter Miguel Barclay. There are lots of dishes that are vegan and vegetarian friendly – in fact Miguel’s vegan one-pound meals book won best cookbook in 2019. No doubt, the mouth-watering meals presented here will leave you with a hungry urge to go and cook them.
Hit the follow button if you want a giggle about typical things that students do, what a day in the life of a student is like, and student problems, all of which you can most likely relate to.

You’ve more than likely already heard of UCAS at school, with regards to applying to university, the UCAS points you need to get into university, and so on. In reality, you might not take it all in from PowerPoint presentations at school, so following the UCAS Instagram account is a great way for you to learn more about the university application process without being bombarded with too much information. They also have tips and advice on things like choosing a subject, where to study, gap years, and many other topics.
