How to get the most out of your SU
As a student, there is rarely much to worry about, and some find it difficult to make the budget stick together. With common sense and consideration, you can still live a good life as a student, because it is largely about planning and saving. Read along here, where we give you good tips to make the money last.
Not all places are lucky enough to get money from the state to live on while studying, but still some choose to take a student job to get a little extra money to live on. You can do that, but it is actually possible to live for your SU if you want to prioritize your time for homework.
Set a budget with room for the fun
As a student, and in other contexts where you have limited funds available, it can be a good idea to set a budget. Here, money is set aside for rent, electricity, transport, food and entertainment. There must be room for enjoyment, even as a student, and an event such as the World Cup, many want to be part of in one way or another. If you love football and betting, take part in the WC campaign here , but be aware of how much money you spend so that you can also afford other expenses for the rest of the month.

Buy on offer
When you don't have a lot of money at your disposal, you have to save. In everyday life, there are many places where you can save, for example by shopping when there are offers. As a student, you can also get a discount in many places with your student card, for example on the train when you have to visit family, then you get a nice student discount .
You can also save a lot of money by buying used. When the student accommodation needs to be furnished, you can advantageously go for used furniture, and you can also find things like plates, lamps and much more on the online second-hand platforms, in thrift stores or at the summer's many flea markets.
Set aside a little each month
Finally, as a student, you can also benefit from establishing a small savings if you have the opportunity to do so in any way. By following the advice above, you may be able to afford to put a little bit aside each month so that when you graduate you have a sum of money that you can use for a deposit for an apartment or something else.
You can also advantageously choose to invest some of your money in shares, because the sooner you start investing, the more time the shares have to increase in value and generate more money for you. Forget the high-risk assets, but instead buy good, solid shares that have performed well over a number of years.
There are therefore several areas of effort that you can look at when you have to study and want to get as much as possible for your money.
