Our Money Manager app helps students put their financial learning into practice to manage their money with confidence. Learn more about the app here.

Student The University of York

“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.”
