  1. I must say this is a great article i enjoyed reading it keep the good work 🙂

  2. Excellent list of resources for students. I can’t help feeling sorry for students nowadays. In my days we received really good grants without the need for loans.

    Those were the days my friend!

  3. Thank you for this list. This is really useful, I have 2 kids at university and they are having to manage their own finances for the fist time.

    Hopefully this will give them good financial habits that will stay with them for life.
