Session 3a: Credit & Debt Scene: Bank Task 1: Starter Task 2: Quick Fire Quiz Task 3: Double Dare Debt Task 4: The Money Muddler MISSION:CREATE: Credit Card Advert
AT THE END OF THIS SESSION... Your team will create a guidance plan for your young person about whether they should go to university and how to get through it with as little debt as possible. Your guidance should be clear and specific to your young person.
Double Dare Debt Put the scenarios into two piles:
You want to go on holiday because you havent been away for three months, but you havent got the money, so the only way to afford it is to put it in on a credit card and worry about it when you get home.
You have a store card with a limit of £500 and youre off to the party of the year. You see some top clobber that is guaranteed to impress the hottie you have your eye on which costs £250, well within the limit of your card so you go for it
You want to go to uni next year but you cant afford to pay the tuition fees straight up. Your parents have offered to help you with your living costs so you decide to get a student loan to pay for the fees.
Youve just started a new job but you cant afford to move out of your parents house just yet, so you have to do the long commute by train every day. The cheapest way to do this is by buying a season ticket to cover the years travel but you cant afford it so you pay for it using a 0% credit card 0%
Youve just moved house and got a new job. Theres no public transport, so you borrow money for a car, though you cant get a cheap interest rate. Yet without a car you cant work Cheap interest rate
The Student Money Muddler
A loan from the government which covers university tuition fees for the duration of the course. The money goes straight to the university and you dont pay it back until after university when you earn £21,000 or above. The loan is also offered to students at a low rate of interest making it one of the cheapest forms of borrowing.
Maintenance Loan (Living Cost Loan)
A loan from the government to cover your living costs whilst at university. These are only available for fulltime students and are paid straight into the students bank account at the start of each term. The exact amount you receive depends on: Your household income Where you live When you start your course What year of study you are in What help you get through Living Cost Grants
Maintenance Grant (Living Cost Grant)
Living cost grants are grants of up to £3,250 that are available to individuals whose parents have a low yearly income. Most important to note: You DONT have to pay grants back!

Money Mentor Top Thinking Tips What is your characters dream job? What options do they have to get there? Do they need to go to university? If so, how can you support them so they do not get into more debt than necessary?
Zaks Credit & Debt CONUNDRUM What I really want to do is become a professional rapper but the industry is hard to break into and can take years to make any money. I remember Tinchey Stryder coming to my school last year and saying its always good to have a back up plan. Maybe uni would be a good back up but I am worried about the cost. I wonder if it would be possible to keep working in the bike shop to make some money on the side?
Tashas Credit & Debt CONUNDRUM I am just finishing my A Levels and have applied to go to university because I want to be a doctor. I need to get at least 3 As to get in and if I dont I will either retake my exams or take a gap year to work out my options. It is a long course so I will end up in a lot of debt but I am sure it will all pay off when Im working. I wouldnt mind getting out of London - maybe that would help me save some money on living costs?
Bilals Credit & Debt CONUNDRUM I have always loved computers and would love to come up with the new cool idea like the iPad. I think it might be useful to study business at university to get some extra knowledge and fresh ideas but I dont know if I could afford to pay rent and bills living away from home. My mum has said I can stay at home if I need. But do I really need a degree to become a successful business man? I hear Bill Gates never even finished university! What should I do?
If you simply remember 2 things from this session: University is not for everyone but for those who want to go, higher fees should not deter you. There is a great deal of financial support available and you dont have to start repaying it until you earn £21,000. Also, the debt is cancelled after 30 years if you havent paid it back. There is a difference between good and bad debt! Good debt is affordable and cheap, bad debt is unaffordable and expensive! But there are always grey areas. Student debt can be the cheapest and most useful debt you will ever be in but whilst at uni, watch out for credit cards, store cards and overdrafts that can put you in more debt.
