Studying might not be cheap, but our bank accounts for students are! As well as a Tertiary Pack, we have some really smart services to help you manage your money while you’re studying.
Kiwibank’s Tertiary Pack is chock–full of good stuff for students:
Students famously make a little go a long way. We’ve come up with some really cool ways to help you manage your money on a shoestring.
Budgeting can be tricky, especially when you’re living on a student allowance. No matter what your income is while you’re studying, a budget will give you control over your finances.
Our online budgeting tool heaps! is free and easy to use, through internet banking. Use it to see where your money goes, set targets, and track your progress towards your goals. You can use it with your Tertiary Pack or Back–up Saver account.
It pays to apply for student loans and allowances well ahead of time. You can apply online on the StudyLink website. Even if you get an allowance, think about working part–time or in your holidays. The less student debt you have, the better.
Find out about other ways to get money while you’re studying on the Sorted website.
