Financial Capability module

The Financial Capability module run by the Money Advice and Funds Service helps new students to develop and improve their financial skills, knowledge and confidence. Financial capability is conceptually different from income or material wellbeing, and reflects students’ ability to manage their money and take control of their finances.

This free module tackles topics such as attitudes to money, budgeting, scams, saving and spending and gives practical guidance on what to do if something goes wrong.

You will be able to develop and improve your financial skills, knowledge and confidence, with a particular focus on the financial products most used by students: overdrafts, student loans and credit cards.

It is structured over three themed weekly workshops starting on 7 March 2018.
