An exciting and jampacked workshop for young people considering studying at university. Uni Dosh provides a comprehensive overview of student finance, banking, employment, tax, and the importance of budgeting when living independently.
Participants look at how student loans work, the accessibility of university, the ‘price tag’ myths and are encouraged to visualise their new lifestyle and prepare themselves to handle the money side of independent living.
- Money In: Student loans, how they work and repayments; how to get bursaries, grants and scholarships, where to find a part-time job and how to read payslips.
- Money Out: Top student spends, average student costs, a university budget challenge and exploring common financial temptations and pitfalls.
- Bank Choices: What to look for in a student bank account, overdrafts and other borrowing options explained.
An online version is also available.
This programme 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.
