I know I'll need access to one or both of these in general, but will I need an actual laptop I can bring with me to lessons or will I be fine working off paper?

I'm debating between getting a laptop I can bring back and forth to lessons and home and use on the train (45 minute commute) or getting a desktop that I can set up at home and share with my mum and 2 brothers, who also live there.

Definitely get a light and portable laptop. Not even debatable in my opinion. Just keep it safe, secure and light - you don't necessarily need to carry it around all the time either as you should get used to using the cloud safely - just google "Thomas Frank cloud storage" or something - meaning you get access to all your files anywhere, anytime, on any device.

In fact, for English tasks, I'd probably eat paper if I lost my essay, but that skill of resilience is essential regardless.

Good luck!
