Events to help you manage your money

The Student Money Service offers a variety of events to help students develop and improve financial skills, knowledge and confidence.

Financial Capability module

The Financial Capability module is structured over three themed weekly workshops. It is delivered twice a year in Autumn and Spring terms. The module blends the practical with the theoretical to help you understand financial management and financial products. The FC module is part of UWE Bristol Futures Award and all UWE Bristol students are welcome to attend.

Each workshop finishes with a quiz and opportunity to win prizes. We provide biscuits, chocolate and a friendly atmosphere where you can learn and meet other students. We often invite external speakers who deliver talks in their areas of expertise focusing on personal finance.

The Financial Capability module won the National Association of Student Money Advisers (NASMA) Financial Capability Engagement Award in June 2018.

As a UWE Bristol student, you also have free access to online Blackbullion financial education platform. You can register with Blackbullion using your UWE Bristol email address and start learning straight away.
