It's officially freshers season in Portsmouth, which means plenty of discounts are available across the city for students to get the most for their money.

Freshers’ Fortnight in Portsmouth is a great way to capitalise on some of the best student deals in the city, from food, fashion and travel.

Many student discount schemes require proof of student identification in order to retrieve the offers, such as a Totum card or a UniDays code.
