Banks, budgeting, and bargains - how to manage student money
From the Author
Note to readers: Congratulations, you've got you're A levels and a university place, but that's not all you need. Have you the money to ensure you survive your course? I've heard so many heartrending stories of students who have had to drop-out of university for no other reason than debt, generally caused by bad money management. Don't let it happen to you.
One reason I wrote Guide to Student Money was to ensure all the hard work you have put in doesn't go to waste. It provides information on what Uni. will `really' cost, how much funding you are likely to receive, how much extra cash you'll probably need to raise and where to find it and what to do if the money does run out. And for those in need of a well-earned academic breather, there's info on taking a gap year. University should be fun - don't let money worries spoil the party. Best of luck!
