Ah, not English, that's not something I can help you with! I use voice recognition software which speeds the whole process up and saves me from RSI but good software isn't cheap. Dragon Naturally Speaking costs £150 - I didn't mind paying this because I use it day in day out for my transcription work, but for a one-off project it's not really cost effective.

You will get quicker with practise, but there's a strong possibility that you will go insane in the process! Your university may have funds available for transcription so you can claim the cost back - it's worth asking.
I'm not a student anymore, but I'm still poverty stricken most of the time so I know a thing or two about economy!
Aldi - I worship at the temple of Aldi! On average, shopping that will cost you £50 at Tescos will only come to £30-£35 at Aldi and not be any the worse for quality/flavour.
Grow your own! You really don't need a garden to grow some fresh veg...if you have a windowsill you can grow a trough of mixed salad leaves, rocket, chives, coriander, spring onions and one tomato plant will provide you with enough fruit to last you for weeks!
Charity shops and car boot sales - cash in on the quality castoffs of those considerably richer than you! It's a wonderful British tradition that has been going on for centuries! Pat yourself on the back for reducing your carbon footprint too by recycling and promoting sustainability of materials!
Hi, check out some of the cheap budget supermarkets - Aldi, Lidl, Nettos - they are basic so don't expect anything too exotic, but they do a good line in fresh veg, fresh and cured meats, dried pastas and sauces and frozen food. Buy a little and often of fresh stuff, as you need it. Stock up on tinned and storecupboard ingredients and get creative with your cooking when you're not studying...ready meals cost a lot more than meals that you prepare for yourself and are often nowhere near as nice!
