Liverpool freshers - by this point you're well into it; the nights out, new mates, free pens, the lot. There's more free stuff to come though courtesy of Skiddle, with not one but two massive prize bundles to give away to all you freshers in Merseyside.
Introducing prize bundle number one. This is one for this for the music heads - there's tickets to massive raves featuring the likes of Amelie Lens and Maurice Fulton to name just two, plus you could also be heading to the fifth edition of Liverpool Disco festival as a VIP. And because we can't have you ravers going hungry, we've also chucked in a free meal at Dough Bar to really top things off.
Prize 1 - Music Lovers' Bundle
2x Circus 16th Birthday tickets 29th September
2x Amelie Lens Liverpool tickets 9th November
2x Annie Mac Liverpool tickets 13th October
2x Liverpool Disco Festival tickets Saturday 13th October
2x Maurice Fulton Liverpool tickets 28th September
Meal for two at Dough Bar
Prize bundle number two is a fresher's dream, there's novelty nights out aplenty - from 'noughties r'n'b loving spectaculars to a footy quiz hosted by Chris Kamara, plus there's also Cow vouchers for the fashion conscious amongst you and a £20 voucher for good old Aldi (you truly are about to fall in love with this place).
Prize 2 - Ultimate Student Bundle
5x Infernal Din Extreme Karaoke tickets
5x Gold Digger hip-hop party tickets
5x Football Quiz with Chris Kamara tickets
5x The Late Wake Club tickets Freddie Mercury special
5x Asbo Cinema tickets for 'The Ring'

We're looking for Liverpool freshers to get involved, simply by following Skiddle on Twitter and RTing the tweet of the competition they want to win most, either the music lovers bundle or the ultimate student bundle (or even both if you want). You can also enter via the Instagram post below. Two winners will be picked out of entries from both competitions on Tuesday 25th September. Good luck!
Want to know more about the prizes?
You and a lucky friend will be treated to a meal at Dough Bar where apart from their mouthwatering good menu, that delivers a tonne of pizzas, burgers, chicken and best of all, halloumi fries (drool), there is also the added bonus of an array of retro console games and arcades.
It's walking distance from the University of Liverpool (and even closer for John Moores students) and is without doubt the perfect spot to skip lectures for (although we could never condone that).
Make sure you're dressed for the occasion with £20 to spend at COW Vintage. The store is an affordable vintage clothing and accessories retailer, selling handpicked items that are sourced from around the world, with an outlet in Liverpool that will no doubt become one of your go-to shopping destinations.
Their online store offers the same range of one-off vintage products as well as handmade and re-worked pieces by their own in-store rework teams.
And while eating out is great, you're going to have to brush up on your cooking skills, so we've teamed up with our fave supermarket Aldi to give you a hand with your food shop - this could come in very handy when the loan starts to disappear!
From quality kitchen essentials to value fruit and veg to pre-drink staples, Aldi is going to be your one-stop shop while you're at uni. Top tip: cooking for your new flatmates is the BEST way to make friends.
