Hi there, i'm not sure if this is a little off topic or not, I was wondering if anyone knew of any UK based courses on the laws around money, a degree, A level, what ever is needed.


To perhaps shed a little light on my situation, I've been studying psychology for about six years now (23YO) I only learnt so that I could gain the skills to interact with and influence others around me, which seems to be working.


I am about to start a PHD in hypnotherapy to help refine the skills I've gained, to go along with it.


However i'm absolutely terrible with money, although my debts aren't large, I still have those annoying phone calls and threats of court proceedings. When I am on the phone to said people, I know that they are lying to me about stuff, but because I don't have a specific knowledge in the laws around money I fail to get anywhere, for instance adding on interest to a frozen account etc...


I've been racking my brains searching through page after page in google, but there doesn't seem to be any courses, any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Learning how to setup spreadsheets can be great fun and doing one for your budget so satisfying. It will help you account for every penny coming in and going out and if you make it sophisticated enough, you can get forecasts of how things will be in the future based on income and expenditure.
