Money Skills: help with budgeting

Money Skills

This project is all about improving your money skills across three core areas: budgeting, increasing income, reducing spending. The aim is to help you enjoy university free of worrying how you will afford your next food shop. We offer all of the following:

  • A self-assessment tool to help you work out where your money skills are at currently, and how you might aim to improve them
  • One to one support appointments for students who have specific areas of money skills they really want to develop

How do I access it?

The first step is to complete the Money Skills Assessment tool on UniHub. This is a brief series of questions which will help you assess your current skills and will generate an email with some suggested next steps. Make sure you click submit at the end.
