The Land of Hope and Glory
I’m starting a university degree in October and was wondering if anyone could recommend some decent software for learning? I’ll be studying business and economics.

Offscreen(Although it only supports M1 Mac, the iPhone and iPad works great)
It's available on the App Store

generally speaking, macOS already comes with quite a few great tools for "learning"

didn't go to a university myself, but i'd guess that it'd be helpful in your case if you looked into the MS Office Suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, Teams) and maybe Adobe Acrobat
Not that you couldn't basically use what already came pre-installed on macOS perfectly fine too, but compatibility issues might more or less require you to use some certain software that more or less are de facto standards in their fields.
But look into what your university actually expects you to use, before spending/investigating anything costy

Use your MacBook for what you need to use it for, you don’t need to use it all day unless you are genuinely working all day. Go to a Library and write handwritten notes or read some books, they stay in your mind longer plus you might meet an absolute hotty there
