Seeing your children start university can be a worrying time for parents. You know they are well equipped for the academic challenges ahead, but how prepared are they for living away from home?
Can they cook? Do they know how to do their washing?
And more importantly, do they know how to manage their finances?
With credit cards being issued as part of the student bank account, students need to fully understand personal finance. Unfortunately we educate our students into debt, but never about debt and students are leaving with much more debt than just the student loan.
