Can You Afford To Study?
ASA knows that being a student and especially studying in Auckland is EXPENSIVE and that you will need a PLAN and a BUDGET to get through your study. We are here to HELP you and have prepared a handbook of tips and a budget calculator to assist you.
We run a budgeting seminar each year with the support of North Harbour Budgeting. We encourage you to attend!

Budgeting Support Documents
When you use the budget calculator - you need to practise some tough love with youself and make sure you distinguish between what are your NEEDS and your WANTS.
