With the new academic year almost upon us, you may be beginning to prepare for a fresh start - and what better way to get ready for going back to uni than to invest in some new tech?

Whether you’re on the lookout for a new laptop to help you throughout your studies or a savvy smartwatch to keep you organised, Samsung has some of the best technology out there for students. 

Best of all, you can enjoy a number of incredible discounts from Samsung with your TOTUM membership, including saving up to 15% on all Samsung smartphones, wearables and tablets, up to £114 off the Galaxy Z Flip5 and a guaranteed £200 off when you trade in with Samsung and 10% off the Galaxy Tab S9 Series PLUS get a free Slim Book Cover Keyboard worth £199 and up to £400 off when you trade in online!

So, without further ado, here are our top Samsung picks to help with the transition back to university life…


Best Laptop: Samsung Galaxy Book3 360 


As a student, you’re going to want a laptop that is lightweight, super portable, durable and with great battery life, which is why the Samsung Galaxy Book3 360 is the perfect laptop for university. 

You’ll more than likely be carrying your laptop around campus with you each day and taking it with you on your commute, so you certainly don’t want to be lumped with a heavy, bulky laptop that becomes more of a burden than anything else. 

If you’re on the lookout for a portable laptop that still has super advanced features, the 13.3-inch Galaxy Book3 360 is the optimal choice. 

Best Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 


If you prefer tablets over laptops, Samsung Galaxy Tab S Series tablets are known for their powerful hardware and smooth performance - and the S9 is the best version yet. 

With high-end processors, ample RAM and sufficient storage, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 is capable of handling multitasking effectively - which, let’s be honest, is vital for students - and has a number of unbeatable design features, including that it’s entirely water resistant! 

Great for both work and play (being able to stream those binge-worthy Netflix shows is just as important as writing essays), the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 is a fantastic choice for students. 

You can get 10% off the Galaxy Tab S9 Series PLUS get a free Slim Book Cover Keyboard worth £199 and up to £400 off when you trade in online with Samsung and TOTUM.

Best Mobile Phone: Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 


You may have seen the adverts persuading customers to join the flip side, and we might have to do just that after checking out the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 and all it has to offer… 

With the return of Y2K fashion still going strong, it only makes sense that we return to our flip phone roots too. 

But aside from the nostalgic aesthetic and the sheer joy of getting to dramatically shut your flip phone as though you’re in an early noughties music video, there are plenty of other huge benefits to the Galaxy Z Flip5

The cover screen in particular is receiving rave reviews thanks to the fact you can still access and interact with plenty of apps even when the phone is closed. 

With the foldable screen making the phone compact enough to fit as easily into your pockets as it does your hands and the ability to capture stunning selfies from any angle with FlexCam, we can see why this is proving such a hit since its recent release. 

Save up to £114 on the Galaxy Z Flip5 plus get £200 off when you trade in with Samsung and TOTUM.

Best Smartwatch: Samsung Galaxy Watch6


The brand new Samsung Galaxy Watch6 is ideal for students who are looking for a relatively budget-friendly but high quality smartwatch with advanced features such as sleep, exercise and daily activity tracking as well as inbuilt GPS features. 

If you’re in need of a durable, long lasting smartwatch which boasts a much lower price point than many competitors without sacrificing on features or quality, the Samsung Galaxy Watch6 is for you. 

Remember, you can get up to 15% off smartphones, wearables and tablets with Samsung and TOTUM.

Best Accessory: Samsung T7 Shield


Portable SSDs (solid state drives) can be a gamechanger for students and professionals alike, offering a significant amount of data storage and an easy way to access documents whilst on-the-go. 

If your course requires storing or creating large media files, the T7 Shield offers external storage that's up to 9.5 times faster than external HDDs.
