What stationary do you need to take to uni? Like do you need lever arch folders/ring binders, paper, notebooks etc.? I'm going to be studying speech and language therapy and have a laptop which I'll probably use for most things so I don't really know how much (if any) stationary to take! Any help if massively appreciated

I'm a huge stationery nerd so these are my tips:
Get some BIC 4 colour pens. (preferably the shine ones) very useful for revision. The Zebra black classic pens are also a shout.
You definitely don't need arch binders if you are not good with tons of paper. Have you thought of taking notes with an ipad?
I would also recommend having 2 or 3 notebooks handy as they are really useful at times.
Hope this helps!

Hi there, to be honest, it already sounds like you have everything you would need, I am in second-year university now and I have all the main items like folders, notebooks, pens, pencils, rulers, etc.
Laptops are good for note-taking in class, and having access to it is also great for research and revision at home or at university. I wouldn't be tempted to over do it in terms of stationary as you don't want to carry unnecessary things or have a pretty heavy bag cause of it. But get whatever you feel you think would be particularly useful and I am sure you will be alright once uni starts!

Good luck and have fun!

Tbh most of the stuff you do will probably be on your laptop but it's still useful to have stationary. You may be given booklets or worksheets and I always find revising easier when doing stuff on paper than on a laptop (e.g. Mind maps, etc.). All you'll probably need is pens, paper, folders, stapler, and if you think they'd be useful highlighters, coloured pens, hole punch.

Im not a fan over these folders where you have a million scraps of paper, think everything becomes a hassle and gets lost.

I think ring bound pukka pads or staple bound reinforced exercise books are better, just keep it on order, date and title everything and it's very easy and simple to use.

But get a couple good pens: like 2 of the fancy Bic ones for exams and what not, then pick up all the free pens, highlighters, rulers etc. from freshers fairs and what not.

Not applicable to all degrees: but calculator, compass, protractor, scissors, glue...
