One of the most exciting events in Blackbullion’s calendar year kicks-off next week! 

UniBattle, running from 11-22nd November, will see over 20 universities from across the country battle for the title of the Money Smartest University. Thousands of students get involved each year, collecting bullions, badges and developing their financial skills in the process.

We know preparations have been underway for weeks, with money advisors and student support teams around the country gearing up to the biggest student outreach programme of the year. For those of you who don’t know UniBattle, it’s a two-week long engagement campaign, where students are rewarded for developing their financial skills with a range of fun incentives.

“I found UniBattle useful as a good motivator to try to gain some control and understanding over the financial hellscape we are forced into as young people. The practical advice offered on things like budgeting and spending so that you can still enjoy life were useful to me. Plus I really enjoyed the Lucky Dip incentive”- Elliott Lee Gossett, student, Goldsmiths University

Blackbullion runs UniBattle as part of Talk Money Week, the annual celebration of the work thousands of organisations are doing to improve money management across the UK. The annual event is organised as part of the UK’s Financial Capability Strategy and aims to get more people talking about money.

“I enjoyed taking part in the battle and learning about personal finance! Financial security isn’t something usually offered or taught, instead you have to learn the hard way through making a mistake or two. Blackbullion’s simple but well-constructed lessons give you the understanding to make the transition to financial independence a little easier.” – Marcus Henson, University of Surrey

All students who sign up to the challenge will learn and respond to key quiz questions, with the  chance to win exciting prizes:

  • 2x Fitbit
  • Acer laptop
  • Coffee Machine
  • 2x Amazon dot
  • Beats by Dre
  • 2x £60 Amazon vouchers
  • Lumie Bodyclock

The UniBattle winning University will be announced on the 22nd November.

We love collaborating with student funding teams to make UniBattle happen. Even more, we love giving the winning team a coffee machine and pizza lunches to celebrate their victory!
