Finance Advice

The cost of living during college can come as a big shock for students and it varies from year to year. It's important to manage your resources well, no matter how scarce they are! While there may be a temptation to substitute a food budget for a “social” budget, you will quickly realise that finding a way of balancing your spending to ensure a healthy, happy and suitably social life during the academic year will be incredibly important. Learning to make a budget of weekly spending and sticking to it may seem tedious, but you will quickly get the hang of it, and will find that you will be managing your money much more efficiently and effectively in no time.  

Financial challenges can still arise at any time during your university journey. There are opportunities available to apply for financial assistance and support in a number of ways. Find out more about the supports available to you below.
