There’s learning content for your prospective students and their parents/guardians too. To give you a competitive edge at open days and better prepare your future students for the real cost of uni life.
Everybody learns in a different way. That’s why we provide financial education in a range of formats, including videos, written articles and interactive tools.
The Blackbullion app helps students put the learning on our platform into practice and supports them to make their money last until the end of term. The very first personal finance app made specifically for students!
To help students reflect on, evaluate and retain what they’ve learned, quick quiz questions and an end-of-topic summative assessment are integrated into our financial education.
“I found the Blackbullion platform very helpful. It’s great to have something that explains finance because it's a big thing when it comes to overall uni experience and wellbeing and it's not something you learn anywhere else.”
We’re on a mission to demystify the world of finance for your students and equip them with the money skills and confidence they need to thrive during their studies and beyond. Our financial education will support them with:
The foundations of personal finance: how to create a budget and stick to it.
Everything from interest rates to compound interest, credit scores to ‘good’ debt and ‘bad’ debt including Buy Now Pay Later facilities, and different methods of paying back debt.
Simple saving tricks, as well as in-depth info on all types of trading and investing.
Guidance on the real cost of student life, as well as info on how the student finance system works and varies across the UK.
Tax, pensions and mortgages including credit scores: how it all works, things to be aware of and steps to take as early as possible.
“The learning pathways in Blackbullion are invaluable and bring so much to our goals and objectives for financial education and capability. The flexibility is great too - a student can learn independently, dipping in and out when they want to.”
“I want to get financially savvy so I’ve read every single article and done every single course on Blackbullion. I never felt like my school actually addressed finances but we need to know about them.”
“I feel like I understand more jargon around the economy now and how it’s reported in the news. Blackbullion has elevated my knowledge and makes me feel accomplished. It definitely exceeded my expectations.”
“Blackbullion not only offers support for students to learn more about financial support, but the platform itself is so user-friendly. Blackbullion staff are always helpful with my queries and the knowledge I have also learnt has been amazing. Enjoying all the staff training and the newsletters too. Such an engaging platform.”
“Blackbullion has given us a distinct starting point at Open Days. Prospective students and parents are introduced to Blackbullion and provided with access to specific modules designed to answer questions around funding, living costs, debt, bursaries and the availability of additional support.”
“It’s great to be able to plug the platform for financial education then offer the practical element of the app at the same time. It’s instantly tangible for students. It feels right.”
