Almost everyone finds it hard to manage their money at one time or another. We know it can be even harder for you as a student as your income is usually paid to you at different times throughout the year - like a student loan in three installments or a part-time job that pays weekly or monthly.

That's why it's useful to create a budget to help you manage your money. It means that you can enjoy your time at university without the risk of ending up in the red.

A budget doesn’t have to be limiting — it’s about planning ahead. To help you do this Queen’s Students’ Union has teamed up with Blackbullion.
