It’s that time of the year again. Unibattle is back for its seventh year! 🙌

Starting on the 6th of November, the Unibattle fortnight will be packed with excellent prizes, and a chance to try out our brand new app.

All you have to do to take part is give your financial wellbeing a bit of love and attention by learning on the platform or hitting that ‘download app’ button. 

All learning done with us during the Unibattle, or new app downloads, guarantee you an entry to our daily prize draw and help your uni or college win the title of Money Smartest. What better way to earn prizes (and potential bragging rights) than also building healthy money habits for life?  

What is Unibattle?  

During the Unibattle fortnight – this year, between 6th-17th November, not including weekends — students at universities and colleges around the world will get a chance to complete personal finance video lessons on our platform, or get access to our brand new money management app. All to help their university or college win the title of ‘Money Smartest’! 

The rules are simple. The more:

  • lessons you complete

  • quiz question you answer

  • Or if you download our Blackbullion app…

…the higher your uni or college climbs up the leaderboard.

And, all these actions get you into our daily prize draw. There are 10 prizes to be won between 6th - 17th November, plus extra local prizes awarded by your university or college (check with your local student support team about that one).

At 3pm on the 17th November, the university or college that tops the leaderboard will be crowned the Money Smartest 2023! 👑

Why should I get involved?

It’s been a tough few years for most of us, with the end of cost of living crisis nowhere in sight, we wanted to bring learning & fun competition together - to boost your financial wellbeing.
