Does your nest-leaver think a budget is something that sits in a cage and eats seeds? Or have they been juggling accounts, allowances, savings and part-time work during their A Levels. This brilliant new software, Personal Accounts for Students, will help the clueless or the clued-up alike, helping them to control their finances right from the first day away from home. As the MD of, Quentin Pain, says, “at least with this, students will understand WHY they are broke!”

The move to University is often our first experience of having to manage real finances and start thinking about boring things like rent, books and travel expenses, not to mention the cost of that infamous student social life.

Personal Accounts for Students from is a new version of a highly popular software which has won umpteen awards and great reviews for its genuinely easy-to-use design and for having all the features students need to deal with student life, without wasting their time on features they don’t. It is quick to set up and hassle-free, but if they ever have a query, they can contact Quentin himself through an on-line forum.

They can keep track of all their income and expenses (student loans, parental contributions, wages, rent, food, books, leisure) and the real aim is to help them start controlling their finances instead of being controlled by them. Most importantly, Personal Accounts for Students should keep the final graduation debt-load as low as possible by helping students see where they may be able to make savings or avoid bank charges by going overdrawn unnecessarily.

You can buy a download of Personal Accounts for Students on-line from or Amazon and other on-line retailers. It costs just £14.99, which is not a lot to pay for their financial future and your own peace of mind. It will also be available from Staples nearer term time and from the National Union of Students website.

Personal Accounts was given a Gold Award by PC Home magazine who said using it was “a pleasant experience throughout!”
