Budgeting

During your time at University, you may become stressed about money, for many students University is the first time you have been financially responsible - feelings of anxiety and worry surrounding money are therefore completely normal.

 

There are many different ways to budget and below we have listed several different sources who have more information on how to budget as a student.

 

You must first decide for what length of time you want to budget e.g. weekly, monthly, etc (monthly is the most common as this is likely how regularly you will pay rent and other bills). The key things you need to consider when creating a budget is; your income (this is everything over the time you have chosen to budget, student loans are paid at the start of each semester so you may need to break that amount down to get a monthly/weekly amount) and your outgoings (these are all the essential things you must spend money on).
