Studying at university is all great and then you think ‘do I have enough money’. It’s very easy to spend money when it’s there but, whilst studying at university I soon realised the value and importance of the pound sterling. This is where I began to organise part time work alongside studying.
We’ve all been there, you go to a supermarket, buy the essentials, then you suddenly get more and more items and think ‘Ooh, I’ll make that for dinner another day’. Sometimes you do make that dinner, but sometimes you forget about it and sometimes it becomes out of date.
It is inevitable that most university students have very little money, and it is important that you are aware of how much you have and you budget it so that you don’t run out.
Money. A boring and often stressful topic for many (unless you’re loaded), but it must be done!
I’ve decided writing about the Academic Scholarship event – a little late, but I think it’s an important event to blog about! In September, I was sent a letter awarding me with a University of Worcester Scholarship for Academic Achievement. I knew I had done well in my 2nd year but was still shocked to say the least.
So you just started university, you have some money in your pocket – savings, parents being generous, maintanance grant…but how do you make it last? Here are my tips!
Moving in to University, the temptation to go out every night and treat yourself to a new pair of shoes or a brand new game with you loan is hard to resist. But do. This will sound like the kind of nagging speech, the kind the parents give. But from one student to another, I have been there with no money and it’s not fun.
