Essential Training for Students before University

Member Resources

At FromHighSchooltoUni, we are passionate about equipping students with the essential life skills to thrive independently after school.


Picture this: you, confidently stepping onto the university campus, armed with more than just textbooks and notebooks.

From mastering time management to learning the basics of budgeting to cultivating critical thinking and building resilience, our comprehensive masterclass is your ticket to success - whether that is in university, or if you are taking a gap year, starting an apprenticeship or diving headfirst into a professional or independent career.

Budgeting Basics for Students

FromHighSchooltoUni has created a mini-training course online on Budgeting Basics for Students that will teach you how to get started with managing your finances at university.


You'll learn how to:

  • Create a realistic budget that works for you

  • Keep track of your income and expenses

  • Save money and avoid debt

  • Find ways to earn extra money

Sounds good, right? But don't stop there!  Read our Student Budget blogs for more!

What are the essential skills every student needs?

Many students struggle with juggling their responsibilities, leading them to feel overwhelmed, stressed and under-performing. We can change that!

Our mission is to provide students with practical strategies, skills and knowledge to cultivate their independence beyond high school with confidence and resilience.

Life Skills for Students Masterclass

Welcome to our Life Skills for Students Masterclass - the ultimate toolkit to unlock your full potential as you move confidently into adulthood!

In this transformative session, we teach students the life skills they need to manage themselves effectively. Students will learn the art of effective time management, organizational tips and financial literacy. But that's not all - we also help students discover how resilience equips you with the adaptability to thrive no matter what life throws your way.

So say goodbye to feeling unprepared, unaware and disorganized - and say hello to a future where you're confidently making informed decisions, thinking strategically and embracing your newfound independence with enthusiasm.
