If you want to read the FT and avoid the £2/day for the print newspaper, they are running a special promotion via Facebook [http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=21709563448] which gets you a free 1 year subscription to ft.com. (Need to be a current/recent student… Must be with a student ‘network’ on FB, i.e. University or College ‘network’. Although… I graduated last year and it worked for me just now.)
I like the FT, but if very rare for me to find a purely accounting-related article (When I occasionally buy it).
For more general business, finance, economy and world news I like to read the Economist (been a print subscriber since 2004!) you can now pretty much get every article free on the website ([http://www.economist.com]).
Whilst at uni (2nd year??), I signed up to the ACCA Accelerate [https://www.acca-business.org/pls/ecommerce/gftreg_pkg.p_main_page?p_scheme=F] scheme (£15/year gave me the ACCA’s student magazine, gives access to ACCA skills days and makes initial registration for ACCA free upon graduation). The magazine was quite useful actually.
hope that helps, ucayman.
