Student Budgeting (Y10 - Y13)

Budgeting is an essential skill for any university student. Your student loan is paid to you in three big chunks at the start of each term, so you need to make sure you make it last to your next payment. Watch the video to find out more.

The session also includes a downloadable budgeting activity. This will show you how to work out a budget when you’re at university and the sorts of things you might spend your money on.

You can download the budgeting activity by clicking the link below. This includes a budget spreadsheet and price list. Don’t worry if you don’t have a computer to use – the prices are included in the session, and you can work out your budget on a piece of paper!

To take part, just download the budgeting activity and then watch the video below:
