The Student Money Manual


The Student Money Manual is the essential guide to student finance and managing money at university. It is aimed mainly at post-16/college students considering going to uni as well as first-year students, but is relevant for all undergraduates. It covers everything from student finance, to making your money stretch further as a student. Each year The Student Money Manual reaches thousands of young people and, over the last few years, we estimate that we’ve reached millions with these vital money messages. The latest Student Money Manual is up to date with the latest information and statistics for 2018/19.

In the past, we have worked with key organisations such as UCAS and NUS to distribute the Student Money Manual for free, directly to around 500,000 students each year. We are always looking for organisations to support our work and would be thrilled to discuss potential partnership opportunities for providing this vital information to students. The Student Money Manual is further accompanied by digital content on our website. The Student Money Manual has a number of key strengths:

  • It is the trusted resource for parents, educators and students about student finance and budgeting at university;
  • It is updated annually each year to ensure information is relevant and accurate;
  • It provides information on the student finance package and managing money at university at a pivotal point for students;
  • As it is often read by parents, it encourages conversations about money between parents and young people;

The Student Money Manual can be downloaded for free or purchased in hard copy. We’ve also made all of the content available online so students can search, share and bookmark as needed.
