So I am starting my degree in September and it is Web Design at Huddersfield uni. Any recommendations on software and hardware to buy for working at home. Thank you

I don't know what the actual content is of that course, but if it's just general web development, then any kind of hardware should be fine really. The hardware would only be important if you need to do some more performance-intensive things, such as graphics rendering, video editing, etc.
So just for web editing itself, any kind of computer will do - a Mac or a PC are both fine. Anything which is able to run basic office software will be more than enough for editing webpages. Just make sure you've installed at least one or two browsers on it - most importantly, get Google Chrome, because it's one of the most popular and widely used browsers.
If there's any paid software which you really need for particular modules (e.g. Adobe PhotoShop is popular for any graphics design or image editing), then I'd suggest waiting until you've started your course, in case you can get a discounted (or even free) student licence through the university.Last edited by winterscoming; 10-02-2018 at 20:57.
