Notion, the all-in-one workspace 

Course notes, documents, to-do lists… Notion lets you store everything all in one place and share whatever you want with whoever you want. The app is extremely adaptable, and it’s incredibly easy to get to grips with using it. And another added bonus? It’s free for students. Just one tip: go for it

Coursera, knowledge at your fingertips 

If you want to learn useful skills for your future, Coursera is for you. Courses, professional certificates, degrees from world-class universities and companies… ranging from science to business and even IT, there’s something for every occupation, at any level. Coursera’s promise is clear: “Learn without limits”.   

Bankin’, the simple and efficient bank 

Bankin’ is an app that lets you manage your money from your phone. It’s quite simple. The app is free and offers a range of innovative functions, like saving money on your bills with its monitoring tool and negotiated prices, quick access to loans up to €1000 to make your plans become a reality, an automatic budget tool to help with savings, or even cashback… practical and smart.

Too Good To Go, the anti-waste solution 

All too often, shops have to throw away food that is still perfectly good to eat. Instead of food being thrown away, you can help to reduce food waste at a great price. This is the mission behind Too Good To Go, which connects responsible traders and smart food lovers. You can enjoy it on a regular basis as there’s something for everyone.  

Kipup, the free digital newsstand

Just create an account and register your student card to enjoy everything on offer.  

Canva, graphic design in practice
