"24% of 18 to 30 year-olds live in constant debt. That's not a statistic we can ignore. This course is a step towards tackling the problem."

"The course gives such sound advice for our children which they just do not learn at school. I am so pleased my son has learnt this information as a teenager and not waited until he has wasted 10 years unaware of steps he can be taking."

- Helena, parent

"It opened my eyes to how important savings are and how vital it is to start early in life."



- Will, teenager

 
 

 
 

Course content:

💸1. Understanding the Economy: We cover the core economics principles that all young people need to understand.

💸2. Managing Money: We show teens how they can save, budget and use technology to help keep a closer eye on their money.

💸3. Learning to Invest: We introduce teenagers to low-risk investment strategies that they can implement now with their spare cash.

 
 

The scale of the problem:

 

"The Share Centre shows that while 98 per cent of investors felt they left school with insufficient financial knowledge, more than 80 per cent believe our cashless society [has] impacted the way children understand money."

- The Independent

"Education about money has stalled, with many secondary schools side-stepping changes introduced to the national curriculum in 2014."
 

The Guardian

"The charity's survey of...4,000 18 to 30-year-olds suggests almost a 1/4 are in debt all the time and almost half have to borrow to make their cash last to the end of the month."

- The BBC

"Students need information about loans, mortgages, interest rates, and credit cards, as otherwise, we will only be able to learn from our mistakes, which is an incredibly worrying thought."

Co-Founder @ Nebula

Hi there - I'm Beth.

I'm an accountant in the government and I hold an Economics & Spanish degree from the University of Leeds. I co-founded Nebula because society is failing teenagers by not teaching them personal finance. 

'Money Matters' helps teenagers avoid becoming another debt statistic by teaching them about basic economics, how to manage their money, and ultimately how to invest their spare cash.

3. 📈

An introduction to investment, the stock and property markets, and how you can grow your wealth in a low-risk manner.

Why we started Nebula:

 
 

Late last year, the Guardian estimated that despite personal finance being on the national curriculum since 2014, as few as 40% of schools actually teach it. 

The problem is worsened by the amount of consumerist advertising that teenagers digest these days. In an effort to keep up with the latest trends on social media and reality television, young people are putting their futures in financial jeopardy.

 
 

Financial products are also becoming increasingly complex and with the widespread attention that assets like cryptocurrencies are getting, possible dangers are lurking around every corner.

The results of all this are clear: 24% of 18 to 30 year-olds are in chronic debt, 13% of young people are interested in economics, and an entire swathe of the population is financially illiterate.

 
 

 
 

What our survey told us:

We asked parents whether they worry about their children buying a home and being financially successful.

How much does the course cost?

Our course retails at £80, which reflects the time put into developing it and the value that each student will derive from it. Our referral programme also makes it easy earn back the initial cost of purchase, so check it out here.

Why is your course so cheap?

Private tutoring in the UK costs anywhere between £30 and £100 per hour. So why are we pricing a three hour educational course at just £79? Because we don't believe that price should be a barrier to financial education. We could charge a lot more but, as a company, we'd achieve a lot less as a result.

Why is your course so expensive?

Countless hours have gone into making this course - hours that we could have spent watching Netflix or sleeping. And, once you build something awesome, people don't just flock to it - you've got to pay to market and advertise it too! Therefore, we've priced the course to reflect the effort that we've put into this project and to cover our costs.
