NUS Extra Card

The NUS Extra card is one of the easiest ways to save money with over 200 UK student discounts . Whether you want to save 40% at Pizza Express or 20% off National Express Coaches, the NUS Extra card is an essential student investment.

Budget 

Don't wait until you run out of money. Draw up a budget before the start of term and plan in rent, insurance, TV licences and flatmate's birthdays. You can work out whether you'll need a part-time job which many students choose to give them some extra cash. The University offers plenty of advise on where to look for part-time work. There are lots of helpful online banks like Monzo which are super useful for keeping track of your spending. Splitwise is also an easy way to split bills, taxi fares or food shops with your flatmates.
