Worried about life after uni? Let Money Saving Expert’s Martin Lewis answer your burning questions
Share This Article:
Money is a tough business, especially when you’re a student with not very much of it in your pocket.
Whether you’re slaving away every weekend in a retail job or just hoping desperately for a financial boost from the bank of mum and dad, it’s fair to say that your bank account probably isn’t in the most ideal shape whilst you’re at uni.
And when just getting through the week is your main concern, how can you possibly start planning for what happens after you’ve graduated?
We know, it might seem a long way off. But it’s really, really not.
Time flies away - just like the money out of your bank account
We have a whole load of questions, personally. For example: student loans – what’s the deal with repayments? How much will we pay back, and when? How can we prepare for life after uni, when we’re likely to be unemployed for a while? Is moving home the done thing, after three years of freedom? Is now, actually, the correct time to panic?
As students, these are all questions that are likely to be on our minds – and if they’re not for you, they will be the closer you get to graduation.
But don’t worry – because Money Saving Expert’s Martin Lewis and The Times’ money editor, Anne Ashworth, are teaming up to bring you the answers to at least some of the questions that are playing on your mind.
