No matter how many student loans or scholarships you’ve managed to receive (and congratulations!), it’s normal to still be concerned about money. After all, there are all kinds of additional and unexpected costs that might come up, from flights to your home country to concert tickets to snack foods.
We highly recommend that you budget your money, but we also know that sometimes it feels great to actively save money too. ( Earning money is a whole other thing that depends on your visa, and if you don’t follow those rules correctly you could face visa or legal issues.) Here are some ideas about getting tips on saving money and how to deal with not having money.
Blog posts: Yeah, we know, it’s obvious. But consider this a reminder that all kinds of financial advisors, economists, professional couponers, and others all want to share their expertise with others.
Youtube: If you learn best by listening and/or you love graphics, check out videos about how to manage your money, life hacks that can save you money, and how to spend money wisely.
School: Sign up for newsletters, follow social media, and make sure to stay in touch with your school (or schools you’re interested in if you haven’t yet accepted) to see if they have any tips, job openings, discounts, or any other money-related information.
