Preparing your child for university, webinar

About this event

With the excitement that university brings, it can be difficult to think about finances and its toll on the ‘Bank of Mum and Dad’. This webinar is an excellent opportunity for you to open up a conversation about the financial implications of going to university with your child and educate them about how it will affect both you and them.

This short introductory webinar will help you understand:

  • How to talk to your children about money – how much can you afford to help?
  • University life, being a good housemate, kitting out your child and apprenticeships
  • What financial help is available?

Other financial planning and well-being webinars coming soon can be found on the Ben Fund website
