That's an absolute rip-off!
And a backpack is something you’re gonna put on everyday either for uni or groceries or whatever so it’s not entirely a waste of money

I literally used an old laptop bag (like a briefcase) and I was sincerely complimented by like 60% of the people on my course. Some people on campus even randomly came up to me and complimented me too!
The laptop bag cost like £15
£300 is honestly way too much. People literally go to lectures/tutorials in their pyjamas (not sure £300-worth pyjamas...). This happens at Edinburgh, Oxford, etc.
