The Best Student Website Just Got Better

Wokingham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 25, 2009 -- Student website [] is celebrating today after being chosen by online publisher to be one of only five UK launch-partners.

Bookboon offers economics, engineering, finance, IT and science students the opportunity to download texbooks and print them out in their entirety for free.

Suzanna Chaplin, Co-founder of Unitown, said:

"We're a website that helps students better manage their budgets. With a rise in student loan interest rates looking increasingly likely, we're delighted to be able to reduce the financial burden buying textbooks places upon students."

Danish company Bookboon is already a major success throughout the world. A similar partnership with the NY Times helped increase traffic to the student section of their website by 30%. Bookboon usually charges a 5000 subscription fee to large media organisations. However, because partnering with Unitown allows them to break into the UK student market and reach a large proportion of the country's 2.3million in higher education, Bookboon offered their services for free.

E.A. Blake, Sales Manager at Bookboon, said:

"Unitown is the only website where students can get exclusive student discounts, cheap travel deals, gig and club tickets and sell old textbooks. This made them a natural launch-partner for us."

Fiona Bateman, Unitown's co-founder, added:

"Bookboon's investment in Unitown proves how important the 15billion a year student UK market is becoming. We can say with confidence that no other website helps students to spend small and live large as much as Unitown."
