Overview

Life after graduation can be an overwhelming moment in a young person’s life, especially if you graduate in your early to mid-twenties. At the same time, it can be an equally exciting new chapter in your life that you can make the most of with proper preparation. And that’s exactly why King’s Student Money Mentors will be running a weeklong campaign during the week of 23rd May 2022 where we’ll have lots of goodies to give away, as well as games and of course crucial information and conversations! We will be exploring all the different areas of ‘adulthood’ students might want to consider after they graduate, so we are calling it ’What Comes Next’!

So, what’s involved in our campaign?

Once you graduate, your entire world will open up to new prospects, new opportunities, as well as new challenges and new obstacles. If you identify some of them, you can prepare yourself better both for what you expect, and what you don’t.

The campaign will be encouraging students to think about things such as paying taxes, understanding payslips, setting up new bank accounts, housing, types of support and countless other opportunities the world has to offer!

We hope that once you have engaged with the campaign, it will help you think about aspects of life after graduation which you may not have thought about or maybe you have but weren’t sure where to go to find out more.

The campaign will be focusing on five main themes:

1.      Monday 23rd May 2022- Financial obligations/repayments - (delivered via social media and stalls with Money Mentors and Advisors at Waterloo, FWB Library Alcove)

3.      Wednesday 25th May 2022 - Banking (Delivered via social media)

5.     Friday 27th May 2022 - A world of opportunities (Delivered through social media)
