How to work out a budget for your life at university
It's important to spend some time thinking about how to manage your money and a good way to begin is by drawing up a budget.
- You can start by taking a look at our estimated living costs.
- Then think about what income you will receive from different sources such as student loans, awards, family and part-time work.
- You will then be able to work out whether there is likely to be a shortfall between your income and expenditure.
