Top Student Deals at WHSmith

The subject of disparaging social media accounts focused on their carpets and the staple fixture in the least glamorous of rail stations, WH Smith is a surprising student sweetheart: but there’s more in store than you may expect with this stationer.

We’ve been looking at their ranges of books, stationery and gifts to see what are the best buys for students in the UK. And don’t forget to visit our student guide to see the latest promotions, voucher codes and sales at

Top Student Buy: The Richard and Judy Book Club Bundle – £24.99

Not strictly a required university read, but a great opportunity to take some time out, indulge in some self-care away from your studies and expand your horizons through your imagination! Despite no longer being the hosts of This Morning, the Richard and Judy Book Club lives on, and each season the top books are sold in a bargain bundle for you to enjoy at your leisure. Even if you’re not in the mood (or don’t have the time) to settle down and read fiction right now, these bundles are worth buying so you can pick them up whenever you’re ready, whilst continuing to try out new fiction styles and perhaps discover something you wouldn’t have otherwise ever chosen!

Top Student Buy: A4 White Wide Ruled Refill Notebook – £3.99

There’s lots of different brands of notebook, and you’ll find many in WH Smith, as you will elsewhere – but their own brand is just as good as any other, and gives great value for money. Already hole-punched, this slides easily into your ring binders of work and at 700gsm is a decent thickness for lugging around between classes and moving between folders as modules progress. These refill pads are super sturdy and sealed at the edge so you won’t lose any loose sheets or all-important notes.

Top Student Buy: Q-Connect A4 Assorted Polypropylene Popper Folders (12-pack) – £9.29

A rainbow variety of folders, these popper folders make for an easy way for you to organise and display your work by colour coding it. Segment by modules, topics, text books or even areas of study. Consider coding by your interest – pink your favourite colour and green your least? You know where to put your best and worst work! These polypropylene folders are water-proof to survive the morning after all-nighters where you’re almost entirely caffeine-fuelled and when they’re this bright, you won’t leave them behind in a hurry.
