Making sure you can afford to study

ASA knows that being a student in Auckland is expensive and that you will need a plan and a budget to get you through your study. 

We are here to help.


Budget Seminar

We run a budgeting seminar each semester, dates to be confirmed for 2023.  If you missed out please book in for one of our budgeting clinics. 


Budgeting clinics

We offer drop-in budgeting clinics on a Friday for groups or one on one.

Things can be tight financially when you're a student and so taking stock of where you are at is something that we can help with.

Budgeting support tools

We've written a great handbook full of $$$ saving tips and designed an excel budget calculator specifically for student needs.

When using the budget calculator, you'll need to practise some tough love and make sure you distinguish between what are your NEEDS and your WANTS.
