Studying this year? Budgeting can help you manage your money

14 February 2022

We have tools to help you budget while you’re studying or training.

It can be helpful to know how much you have to live on this year. This might be money you earn working, plus student payments like Youth Allowance, Student Start-up Loan as well as Rent Assistance.

Making a budget can help you stay on top of bills. For a tool that’s quick and easy to use, try the Simple Money Manager.

Once you have a budget, keep it handy and check it often. You’ll need to update it when there are major changes in your life.
