Careers and Finance

Welcome to the Careers and Finance category on Urbanest’s Journal. Here you’ll find all the very best advice on what to do after university and how to fund your way through your education.

With our career advice, we want students to have as much information as possible as to what they can do with the subject they are studying. Not only that, we regularly speak to former students, business professionals and other experts to gain their invaluable knowledge and build a resource that guarantees you will leave more informed.

With our finance advice, we want students to have the best advice available to not only make it through university comfortably, but also be aware of how best to plan for the future. We include expert advice on financial planning, how to budget for food and if how to split household bills. Finance ties to careers and healthy eating, which link through to equally helpful articles covering a range of topics that every student should be familiar with.

Discover all you need to know about how to be a successful student here at The Journal, from advice on the best places in London to experience Christmas to how to set up your desk ahead of a decent study session. Browse our other categories for help with the range of aspects of student life such as Study, Accommodation and News & Events.
