An exciting and jampacked workshop for young people considering studying at university.

  • Money In: Student finance and repayment, part-time jobs and tax, bursaries, grants and scholarships.
  • Money Out: University start-up shopping challenge, university lifestyle budget, average student costs.
  • My Bank Balance: Student bank accounts, overdrafts, forms of payment, statements, debit and credit cards.
  • Your Money: Real life stories, student vox pop videos, action plan, Q & A, useful websites, tools and tips.

Uni Dosh offers a comprehensive overview of university money matters. Participants are encouraged to consider their personal circumstances, visualise their university lifestyle and get a ‘reality check’ regarding the financial situations that students face. The workshop is designed to make young people plan ahead and evaluate the choices which they will have to make at university. All participants receive a ‘Next Steps’ information leaflet to take away with them.

Case study

Year 12 at Sir John Cass Sixth Form, Tower Hamlets took part in Uni Dosh as they were starting the UCAS application process. Participants found the real life aspect of the financial education session really useful. One student said:

“I liked that the presenter shared her personal experience with us, and it made me think twice about how I will spend my money”.

Walthamstow Hall, an independent Girls School in Sevenoaks, ran Uni Dosh to prepare sixth form students for university. The Head of Sixth Form, Jane East, said:

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday. The girls all agreed it was an excellent workshop, very informative and enjoyable and we want it again next year!”
