11 Helpful Apps for Students: 

Going to Uni can be an exciting time for students but a scary one too. For many, it is their first real time away from home and marks the beginning of the transition period from late teens to adulthood. Hopefully at the end of their course; Students will not only leave the University building with their degree but with a great deal of life experience too that will stand them in good stead to navigate the world at large.

The life experience gained at University or College may include A LOT of socialising but there is also plenty of work to be done by students to ensure they stay on track. Making lectures and meeting deadlines as well as meeting new mates in the Student Union can be done by the assistance of the following 10 helpful apps that will help students factor in both work and play:
