What comes next? Helping you manage your money after graduation

Rachel Money Mentors

Life after graduation can open up new prospects and opportunities that you can make the most of with proper preparation.

This is why King’s Student Money Mentors, in collaboration with Blackbullion, will be running a campaign about finances for students after graduation from Monday 23 May – Friday 27 May 2022.

The ‘What Comes Next’ campaign aims to set you up with a strong foundation to build your financial future without worries, encouraging you to think about things such as paying taxes, understanding payslips, setting up new bank accounts, housing and more.

There will be in-person stalls and online events, as well as free giveaways, quizzes, prizes to be won, including a coffee machine, and more! Check-out the schedule of events below.

We hope that once you have engaged with the campaign, it will help you think about aspects of life after graduation which you may not have thought about or weren’t sure where to go for guidance.
