Living and Finance

Glasgow is a fun and stylish city! However, this doesn’t mean that you should go mad on the financial front!

Extra cash may seem a good idea at the time, but mounting student debt isn’t fun. This section will tell you about different ways to manage your money and how to get help if you're worried about paying your bills.

Watch out for payday loan companies like Wonga and Quick Quid whose unbelievably high interest rates will end up leaving you out of pocket. These are dangerous routes to go down, so if you need to loan money, look for safer, cheaper options.

The University's Discretionary Fund is something you should look into applying for if you're struggling to find enough money to get by; this is awarded in the form of a non-repayable grant. They look at your income and all the money you spend each month to assess if you need some extra help. There's also a designated fund for childcare and interest free emergency loans available too.

Check out the other sections for quick guides to student finance and benefits.
