It’s not uncommon for students to struggle financially when they first get to university. The appearance of a student loan in your bank account can be slightly overwhelming and create a great temptation to go out on a huge spending spree.
Creating and sticking to a budget can be difficult for anyone, but it’s important to remember that this money needs to last you until the next payment. We always suggest saving some ‘emergency’ money tucked away somewhere safe to cover any unexpected bills or payments.
What are you likely to spend your money on?
- Rent for your accommodation
- Food and drink
- Travel to and from your home
- Clubs and Societies memberships
- SU nights out
