Student Finances

Pay yourself first

Save at least 10% of all of the money you get

This is SO important

It means put away some saving BEFORE you pay even your bills.

Put some money away right away, before you have the chance to spend it

Jobs

Ask for help finding one

Connexions

Ask your mom and dad's friends for leads

Take any job at first --for the first 10 years much you learn is more important than how much you earn

Hey, that rhymes :-)

Get references from teachers or people who you've impressed

... so start impressing them now ;-)

Low Income?

Free School Meals

EMA

Saving money

Keep your costs down

Give yourself a budget --a weekly limit

Notice when you spend

Watch out for Oxford Street Autopilot

16-18 yr olds can get a free Oyster card. Ask for a form at the tube.

Family

Some students get an allowance from their families

Thank your family that you can live with them (big £££ savings)

Dangers

Don't even think about credit cards

Bling

You should be sitting down for this... use an old mobile, At least it won't get stolen
