The Financial Support Team (FST) will be running a budgeting workshop on Wednesday 15 October at 2pm. It is aimed at first year UK students to help them manage their money effectively.
Living on a student budget is not impossible, but with payments from loans and grants made in large instalments at the start of each term, stretching income to the end of the term can be challenging.
This workshop will outline what a budget is, why you need one, how to get started, what can go wrong, what you can do if this happens and how to stay out of financial trouble.
Students who attend will also be able to get help with planning a budget and will be given access to an online budget calculator which can be saved and updated during the year.
All students who attend will also receive a free calculator and piggy-bank.
Please book early to avoid disappointment as places are limited. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place now.
