Abstract

Financial literacy is important for people of all ages, but it is especially important for students as they are starting their independent life. Currently in the UK students at schools are supposed to receive basic lessons in the subject as part of their Citizenship GSCE course, but in reality majority of them leave schools without having clear understanding in the subject. Russia is introducing courses on Financial Culture to all students in all universities as part of their financial literacy programme. This paper will be looking at the ways of developing financial literacy (FL) of students in the UK and Russia, starting from measuring existing levels of FL and developing intervention courses and evaluating their efficiency.
