I am doing Web Development at University and I am thinking about getting the Adobe Web Premium Student package for £202 on amazon but is this the right time to buy. Ie if I left it until a certain date would I get a free CS5 upgrade? Like what laptop users got before Windows 7 came out?
Depends when you need it and what you'll use it for.
Looking at past release dates:
CS shipped Sep 03
CS2 shipped April 05
CS3 shipped April 07
CS4 shipped Oct 08
IF Adobe sticks to the established 18-24 month upgrade cycle, CS5 may ship somewhere between April 2010 and Oct 2010.
But only Adobe knows the true shipping date for CS5 and things may change.
Bear in mind though that there may be no compelling features in CS5 that you'll need. Unless you just want the latest and greatest.

In the past, Adobe would send you the update only if you ordered AFTER the date of the new release was announced.
