Financial Fairytales

 

Welcome to the award-winning Financial Fairytales programme.

Your Students’ Union and the University of Lincoln has partnered with financial education specialists ‘WEALTH at Work’ to offer a unique opportunity to University of Lincoln Students’. This programme is entering its fourth year and has been awarded the ‘Best Financial Education Programme’ by UK organisation Employee Benefits.

 

What's it all about?


Managing money whilst at University has become increasingly challenging for students across the UK. Whilst having those ‘Cinderella Shoes’ or that ‘Happily Ever After Holiday’ might seem like the most important thing right now, the impact of making mistakes will not only affect your student life, but could stay with you when you start your career. Graduating from University is likely to be your focus; however avoiding financial problems and finding your dream job when you graduate are likely to be just as vital.

We are here to support you on your quest - wherever that yellow brick road might take you - and want you to have all the right information to make informed choices.
