Student life can be tough going, especially financially. With money too tight to mention, you might think relative luxuries like wireless headphones and a quality TV are out of your reach. But hold on. Have you seen some of the discounts students are entitled to?
From hundreds of pounds off a big-screen TV to streaming service's free trials so you have something watch, to hefty discounts on Bluetooth speakers, headphones and even multi-room systems for the home, whatever you're shopping for, there should be a deal for you.
You can see the best ones currently on offer below. It almost makes us want to re-enrol at university.
Best student deals on hi-fi and TVs
3 months free Apple Music and Apple TV+
Apple Music is a five-star streaming service, and while Apple TV+ only earned three stars from us, it still has plenty going for it, like originals such as Ted Lasso and Bad Sisters. Start the trial at the beginning of the academic year, and you'll have nothing to pay until Christmas.
10% off all Sony headphones and speakers
Sony's headphones are some of the best around – witness the over-ear WH-1000XM5 and the new WF-1000XM5 wireless earbuds – so 10 per cent off is very welcome. But be minded, they are often discounted elsewhere, so you might find them cheaper – check our list of best Sony headphone deals before you buy. Its speakers are less venerated, but still worth a look.
Sky Stream for £21 a month plus £50 voucher
Student homes often can't bolt a satellite dish onto the side, but Sky Stream negates that by bringing you Sky TV over the internet. It usually costs £26 a month, but this deal slashes that by a fiver every month. You will need to sign up for 18 months, however. Or you can sign up for nine months and pay £24 a month – still a significant saving.
10% off Sony TVs
In terms of motion, Sony's TVs are unparalleled. So if you watch a lot of sport or fast-moving action films, this could be the deal for you. Again, you might find its TVs more heavily discounted at other retailers, so shop around. Our list of the best Sony TVs includes the best deals on each.
20% off JBL Charge 5 Bluetooth speaker
The Charge 5 won a 2022 What Hi-Fi? Award thanks to its wide soundstage, clear and detailed sonic performance and even more robust build quality. It can act as a portable power bank too, charging up your phone on the go. Handy if you're running out of juice between lectures.

15% off Sonos products
For most people, Sonos is the best multi-room system around – its speakers are sleek, great-sounding, and rarely discounted. But that all changes with 15 per cent off. Its range now includes soundbars and subwoofers, and they all connect wirelessly for a whole-house system.

Up to 50% off Sennheiser wireless headphones
Sennheiser's wireless headphones are always worth a listen, especially the Momentum 4 Wireless, which boast an astonishing 60-hour battery life. And you're more serious about sound, there's also up to 40 per cent off Sennheiser audiophile headphones, plus a more general 40 per cent off which includes home cinema devices like soundbars.
