Money Planner

Our money planner is an interactive tool that allows you to generate your own budget for the year.

  • Input your own weekly or monthly figures for all costs including accommodation, general expenses, living costs, and study costs, and it will help you understand how much money you may need.
  • Use this to budget for the coming year and identify any potential difficulties or shortfalls in advance of starting your course.
