Well put together. Best planner ever!' -- BSc Hons Astrophysical& Computer Science 'I used this student planner throughout university and continue to do so now, despite being a graduate. I found it extremely useful for planning my timetable and for keeping abreast of assignment deadlines. It is clear, concise and value for money!' -- Mr M K Egan 'This is a really great diary because it combines a diary and a to-do list. I used it for my PGCE course, and finally was the organised student / person I have struggled to be!' -- Blossom Girl 'I ordered 2 of these yesterday for me and my fella and they came today. I am so impressed !. it comes with a ruler and the whole thing looks like it will make it to the end of term without falling apart.' -- Aisha Shawcross Review of a previous edition: 'This diary is a student's life coach in a plastic wallet. Having laid my hands on a copy I'm struggling to imagine how I survived University without one. Containing information as varied as time-management tips, spelling rules and personal finance information, it is clearly laid out with an academic year planner, week-to-view diary, and useful contacts, websites and study advice.'

Our customer reviews
This is the only planner I have found that it is especially focused for university students, there is space for everything we could need: Tutor contact details, useful websites, landlord contact, space to write down revisions and exams dates, many pages for timetables... plus some other tips for daily life or study from spelling rules to laundry symbols. The only things I dont really like are the different shades of blue the planner has been printed on (but we can make it more beautiful :) and being Spanish that it is meant for English students and sometimes that is a little annoying for me but still I would totally recomend it.show moreby Eva M Vega Rey
