December is here and with Christmas fast approaching, we’re starting to remember how expensive this month really is! You’ll be spending some serious cash over the next few weeks, on Christmas presents and festivities. It’s important to set aside money for this and budget so you’re not broke by January! In preparation for the festive period, here are some useful tips on how to save money at university.
Starting university is a huge milestone for all new students. At sixth form, you had the luxury of home cooked meals, your parents doing your laundry and not spending money on rent. When you move to uni, you’ll quickly learn how to be independent and fend for yourself. Adjusting to university life can be challenging in the first few weeks, but you’ll gain confidence and life skills that will last throughout your degree. Here are the 4 things I’m glad I did before starting university.
As a student, finding a job that fits around your schedule is important. Here are a few entrepreneurial ways earn money, without the regular commitment of a restaurant or shop job!
So, it’s the start of a whole new year. Maybe you’ve got some New Year’s resolutions that you strongly intend to keep this year. Or maybe you’re a bit strapped for cash after spoiling all your loved ones over the holidays!
Either way, January seems as good a time as any to look for a part-time job – we’re all students who could always do with a few extra pennies!
Feeling financial pressures and dissatisfaction with your bank balance during university, will occur. Whilst spending money will benefit economic growth, does this benefit or dampen your experience in your individual outlook?
Everyone loves a bargain, especially students who are on a budget. Luckily, student deals are nearly everywhere, which, for those like me (who love saving money), makes a huge difference to the final total.
Hi, everyone! Hope that the post-holiday blues haven’t affected you so much this year.
Student finance is essentially money provided by the government to help students to be able to afford to study at university. It covers the upfront costs of course fees and provides money to help students with living costs whilst they are studying.
