University life can be a steep learning curve, and how you manage your money during your studies can greatly impact your university experience.
Our Your Money team wants to equip you with the knowledge and tools to manage your money and navigate your finances with confidence.
Here’s how to get started:
📝 Create a budget. This is the most important step to making sure you don’t overspend, and you’re in full control of what goes in and out of your bank account.
👩🍳 Arm yourself with some easy and cheap recipes and say goodbye to those tempting takeaway apps. Cooking fresh meals saves you money, and it’s good for your health and wellbeing too! Check out some quick recipes.
💸 Explore some of the best student discounts, but remember, only buy what you actually need. You’re not saving money if you weren’t planning on buying it in the first place.
👓 Find out how you could save money on healthcare costs such as eye care, dental care, and prescription costs.
Make sure you’re up to speed with your banking. Most banks have budgeting tools built into their apps so you can track your spending and know when you need to slow down.
