Let’s face it, students have got it tough! With the rising costs of living and increased tuition fees, being financially responsible is more important than ever!
Knowing what finance you’re entitled to is an essential step in assessing whether you can afford university and depending on your personal circumstances, you may be entitled more than you thought.
The type of student account you have will also be an important step. Some accounts have better 0% overdraft deals than others, so it’s worth looking into what options are available. A common problem among students is to go with the bank that provides the most freebies – make sure you choose your account for the right reasons!
It’s so tempting to use your student loan to splash out on things you want, but you’ll need that cash to pay for accommodation, food and travel. Prioritizing between the things you need and want is key in managing your finances successfully.
