Top Twitter Accounts For Students: Part II

This is part 2 of 2 of this list. Click here for the first part.

Yesterday was results day and whether or not you were happy with your grades, there are always opportunities out there for you to discover and unravel. Using Twitter is just one way of getting opportunities as opposed to the usual Gumtree shenanigans.

Last week, this list featured Londoners, freelancers, a multi-tasking journalist and two excellent fathers…well, one excellent father. So lets get cracking and draw the curtains down to this list!

#7 ME LIKE GOOD MUSIC

Tired of the overused drum-machines, cold usage of auto-tune and manufactured crap that is currently circulating the top 40 charts i.e. the mainstream music scene? If yes, then now is the time to unblock those ears and follow Me Like Good Music, who’s tweets serve to provide us with a brilliant variety of genres.

And just to put it out there, I. Hate. The X Factor or anything related to the devil a.k.a. Simon Cowell.


#8 POLITICAL PARTIES

Whether if you support the Conservatives, Labour, the Liberal Democrats or George Galloway’s Respect partay, following all political parties gives you an insight on their policies and useful links, especially when the Department of Education have been given huge budget cuts by the current coalition Government.

Here’s a list of the three main political parties’ Twitter accounts:

LABOUR

LIBERAL DEMOCRATS

CONSERVATIVES

#9 NATIONAL UNION OF STUDENTS

A must-follow – with fees set to rise and universities feeling the squeeze, the N.U.S’s influence in protecting student rights looks set to play a huge part in the future. Follow their tweets to see what the union is up to and how they can help you survive university or join their campaigns.


#10 THE OPEN UNIVERSITY

A unique university where they accept students regardless of previous academic achievements (for most undergraduate courses) and is a very flexible in terms of how they teach students (DVDs, internet i.e. distance learning), which is good news for disabled students.

If you are uncertain about your educational future, consider taking a look at their website.
