Financial Capability course

Learning how to manage your money is a crucial part of university life. UWE Bristol offers a wide range of support to help you develop essential money skills and get confident about your finances.

It 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. There will be a particular focus on the financial products most used by students – overdrafts, student loans and credit cards.
