The Complete Guide to Australian Student Finance
In this section:
As a young adult - let alone a student - money can be a hard to get a hold of. Whether it's studying or travelling, most roads after post-graduation will cost money.
But how do the majority of us have money after we've been in school our whole lives?
Some of us have our parents to fund us. Others may be saving their whole lives, or have earned enough from a part time job.
For the rest of us, there's credit.
What is credit?
Credit is the loose term used to describe borrowed money which is generally repaid with interest - the cost of borrowing money.
Financial products which are relevant to students and young adults include:
- Credit cards
- Debit cards
