Financial Capability

Practical Advice While You Study

The Money@CampusLife team aim to promote financial capability within Higher Education.  This enables students to take control of their finances before they run into problems.  Our advisers are equipped with the knowledge, skills and resources to educate and help students and encourage preventative actions.  

Throughout the year we run a series of quizzes, workshops and events to increase financial capabilities and awareness throughout the University. 

What We Do

Budgeting Advice

Creating and Maintaining a budget is a must do for all students. We provide many tools and resources to help empower you to budget more effectively. Follow us on Instagram at Money.CampusLife for helpful tips and videos and also check out our Taste of Home initiative aimed to get students to cook for each other and save money on their food bills. 

Dealing With Debts

Many students fall into financial hardship because of large debt repayments which are unaffordable on limited student income. From loan sharks to credit cards, The Money@CampusLife team can provide the advice and support required to help you deal with your debts.

Student Bank Accounts

The majority of students are entitled to a student bank account which usually provides a number of perks including an interest free overdraft. The Money@CampusLife team can advise how to compare these accounts to make sure that your account works best for you.

Benefit Entitlements

The Money@CampusLife team can provide advice on what benefits you may be entitled to and provide a basic benefits check. We can also refer you to a benefit specialist should your query require specialist advice.
