Basically just look out for deals - if you shop for fruit and veg in a market and get the rest of your food on deals (or sainsbury's basics or whatever) then you can do a load of shopping really cheaply and you'll have more than enough food. I'm a veggie so I guess it's even cheaper for me. There are of course a few things I make sure I always have:
Beans (like kidney beans or haricot beans)
A loaf of bread
A Sainsbury's Basics Pizza (a bit minging but good and cheap)
2 bottles of wine
loads of herbs and spices
Once you have all that stuff you can cook so much with just one or two extra ingredients.

I am actually a decent cook but as someone else said I find it really really boring to cook only for one person. So I wouldn't mind if someone did the food shopping and i cooked something nice [on the weekends]. right now, am living on my own and i usually cook for myself. My diet at Uni will be something like this.
Rice with vegetables + salad
Pasta with tomato sauce + salad
Tuna+corn+salad plus bread
Fish + salad + bread x 2
Black eyed peas [am serious] with spinach leaves
Dinners: bread and cheese and salad, vegetarian pizza, a little pasta salad..
[this is what i eat now, anyway]
of course it all depends on time. if i have more time [and money] i ll cook much better things.
You really ought to avoid microwave meals, ready made stuff etc --> yuck
