You might think they’re a pain, but the mature-age students I prepare for university are thrilled to receive the intellectual nourishment they thought was reserved for others
Mature-age students are annoying, I know. I understand that when you’re 18 or 19, and already know everything, there’s not much of a reason to do the readings or show up to tutorials having prepared. I also understand that there are these old people in class who should be doing other things – maybe retiring, or dying so they can give their poor kids their overdue inheritance. They are eagerly asking questions (or worse, answering them) and generally being a nuisance.

Sticking to a budget is one of the best ways for a student to make the most of his or her money. Reflecting on your spending and saving habits should help you better understand your needs and how you can make your budget encompass everything it must.
