How to make a student budget: Use the Student Calculator!
Here’s a handy online app to help all students get their finances in order.
Especially ideal for Freshers or those about to start a new year at University, the Student Calculator is a tool to help students work out how much money they will have at university, and how much they will need.
Designed for those studying from England only, you need only answer a few simple questions to get an estimate of your student finance entitlements.
Then just record your income and spending by year, month or week to find your overall balance.
If you follow our money saving tips you can then track your results and see how much you’re (hopefully!) better off.
There’s also an international version for overseas students.
