Students Get Sorted

Introducing Sorted Students: a programme designed to help students manage their money.

Developed by the Retirement Commission, Sorted Students is an addition to its highly successful Sorted website.

Launched today, it’s an independent website that helps students get sorted on money matters.

Sorted Students makes it easy for students to work out the best way to pay for their studies. It’s designed to help students to make some smart decisions that will pay off for years to come.

Retirement Commissioner Diana Crossan said Sorted Students provided calculators and tools to make it easier for students to manage their daily finances.

“Sorted Students is a tailored, interactive and fun way for students to investigate their study options and help them make informed choices,” said Ms Crossan.

“It’s for all students who would like to have a better understanding of the longer-term financial implications of the tertiary courses they are taking.

“One great feature is a calculator that helps students estimate the future financial value to them of qualifications they are studying.”

The website is targeted at students studying at tertiary institutes and at senior secondary students considering any form of tertiary education.

“For many students, taking up tertiary study and the financial decisions that are associated with it can be daunting,” said Ms Crossan.

“Sorted Students will make it much easier for students to get sorted on money matters.”

What you can do on the site:

- find out what your loan is costing you
- how much you can save by paying it off sooner
- see whether the cost of getting qualified is money well spent
- your Money Personality Profile – and learn your money management strengths and weaknesses
- manage your money better with our budget calculator
The best way to get Sorted is online – at
You can also get Sorted Students by going to your local library to use the internet there (Sorted is sometimes one of the free access sites offered by libraries).
