  • Creative Live! webcam

    Going to college and using Skype to keep in contact with friends and family doesn't mean you have to invest in a high-end webcam. But if you want something a little better than your PC's default camera, you might want to consider buying a product like the Creative Live! webcam -- which is capable of HD 720p chats, snapping 5.7-megapixel photos and playback of up to 30 frames per second.

    Price: £31.49 ($48)

  • LED Reading Book Light

    Although we often rely on our Kindles, E-readers and tablets for reading material, many college libraries only offer physical copies of books. As part of a college starter kit, a cheap LED reading light which can be clipped on to books is likely to be a useful addition. 

    Price: £2.99 ($5)

  • Touch-screen gloves

    Once winter beckons and you're forced to trudge to class through icy winds and low temperatures, a pair of gloves is a necessity. But if you need to check your smartphone, it's difficult to control your mobile device with traditional gloves -- so why not buy gloves specifically designed with touchscreen devices in mind? 

    Price: £4.95 ($7.60)
