    Dear TSR'ers,

    We all have heard the horror stories of a maxed out overdraft in semester 1, struggles to pay rent and the extremes to which some students go to live until their next pay package. But do you think we would have less of a problem if schools and/or unis introduced basic financial training for prospective first years, or do you think it would be a waste of time? Should we just be left to make our own mistakes and figure things out, or try to prevent it at extra cost to the unis? Interested to hear your thoughts! 😀😀

    No. I would that by the time you're 18 you'd have some sort of understanding on how to budget.
