Managing your personal finance is a basic life skill, one that will not only enable you to live within your means and avoid debt but also help you in most future careers. It can be challenging to stretch your money out over the whole year especially if you receive small maintenance payments, but through a combination of maximising your income and minimising your expenditure it is possible to live well, study hard and enjoy yourself whilst at University.

On this page we will examine some financial pit falls, the consequences of bad money habits and offer advice, solutions and signpost to specialist organisations if you need further support.

To find out more about how to create good money habits (such as budgeting, making offers and discounts work for you and monitoring your expenditure so you stay in control of your financial situation) please see this page: Making Your Money Go Further
