Managing your money 

Getting your finances under control before you arrive will allow you to relax and enjoy your time at University.  

Plan your budget

Budgeting is one of the most important things that you will need to learn as a student. These resources will help you think about the money coming in and going out of your account and develop a balanced budget.

Funding and scholarships

Funding is available from both the government and the University to help you meet your living expenses.

Struggling with your money?

It can be difficult to managing your finances while trying to focus on your studies, especially if you are living away from home for the first time. The University has a number of support services available to help you.

Finding a job

Worklink is based at the Guild of Students, and works alongside the Job Zone to provide students with the connection to on-campus casual work.

The Job Zone gives you access to hundreds of part-time and temporary vacancies in the local area, both online and on display in the Job Zone.
