This week’s writer is a self-funding humanities master’s student. This is their first year at Cambridge – they used to attend another university with a student loan and bursary.

Cambridge Money Diaries: Week 1

Welcome to Cambridge Money Diaries. In this column we ask an anonymous student to take us through a week of their expenditure; charting the trials and tribulations of saving and spending all against the backdrop of weekly essays and Wednesday Cindies. This week's writer is a first-year who talks about managing their taxi habit, and their desire to improve their financial efficiency. They're on a maintenance scholarship and a full bursary from the university.
