More money for booze

Bigger hangover in the morning

I hope this can help students and people that are just moving out and starting a new home. I have learnt how to save more after my student days, since moving out as that's when money becomes tighter. Student life is fun, and all students have to scrape by and you will learn how to live off little...

“Frugal Fun For Students”

published 26/01/2007

Save money

Takes a bit of effort!

As a recent PhD graduate, I have completed 8 years of university: three of those were spent as an undergraduate, one doing my master's degree, and the rest on completing my doctorate. I am also very proud to be in the small minority of ex-students who are not in debt (and I'm hoping it will stay...

“Student Survival Guide”

published 23/08/2001

Your student years can be the best of your life an...

But managing your student funds is always hard!

As a student, one of the most important things you'll have to manage at university (more important even than alcohol and studying!) will be money. Obviously everyone is in a different situation - I can't give specific advice for everyone (you'll have to think about your own situation) but I hope...

Grand title, huh? I looked up “thrift” in my trusty OED, and this is what it said. Now students may not be responsible for a whole country’s budget, but they still need to be careful. While I would never say that a uni degree is a waste of 3+ years, dropping out part way through...

“Stretching The Student Pound”

published 11/03/2003

You can be better off

You will not be a millionaire

Yes folks, old people get a minimum income guarantee of £100 per week from Her Majesty's esteemed government, but students are expected to survive off an £800 a year loan (if they're lucky)!! So, apart from still being totally reliant on Mummy and Daddy, what should the typical student be looking...

I am tight. I have often been told that. I will do nearly anything to avoid paying high prices. And here I am to share some of my tips with you. Whether you are a student or not, give them a go. I bear no responsibility if they fail! This opinion is ever so slightly tongue in cheek, so don't take...

Lots, you can spend money on better things

none

Seeing as there’s less than three weeks left till I go back to University, I thought I'd give my advice on saving money whilst still enjoying your time there. It will be the first time for many people that they’ll be in charge of their finances and it’s easy to get into debt...

A Career Out Of Your Studies

Deep Financial Mess.

My life has been completely ruined since I started university. This is because of the financial mess I am in. I was like any other lad who was looking forward to university life both in terms of being successful and enjoying the experience. I was accepted at University of Manchester Institute of...

You have to be good at it before it can be fun!

We all know the stereotype of students living on beans, but they really are cheap and good for you! Here are some of my favourite things to do with beans. You needa few things to get you started, herbs, spices etc. but these usually last ages -persuade your mum to buy thenm for you at the start...

“life at university”

opportunities,knowledge, explore, specialise

costly, stress, lack of help, unhappiness

For most university comes across exciting and a path to a successful career. In some respects higher education does give stability and alot more opportunities. However it does come with a price, which most of us end up paying off for most of our lives. It seems rediculous that the government is...
