Budget planner

It is tempting to forget that income like your loan or grant has to last you longer than the first month and that you still have to pay for essentials in the last week of term. This page has been designed to help you work out your income and expenses over the course of the academic year and see what you will have left over.

Fill in every box that applies to you (rounded to the nearest pound) then press the Calculate budget button.

The Budget summary section at the bottom of the page will show you:

Your total monthly income - your total monthly expenditure = the total left over to spend on non-essentials
