At Unity SU, we believe that ‘education shouldn’t be a debt sentence’
What you’re about to read will change your life completely. In time, Unity SU will become a trusted friend, a companion and a guide throughout your university life. Unity SU will help you make good financial decisions, make sure you don’t miss lectures, find a place to live, keep you up to date with what’s important to you, friends, family, course work, and eventually even help you get that first job.
No, not crazy, just a little common sense.
You see we have been working on Unity SU for ages, years in fact. We listened to hundreds of Students and asked, ‘what is it that you want, really want, to help you make University life more enjoyable?’ So you told us.
In short you said, ‘take the best parts from all the apps we use, and put them into one. And oh yeah, please take out the bits we don’t like, subscription fees, sales commissions, and we don’t like people getting away with repeatedly bad or expensive service’.
You said you want a chance to get a voice, and that you are fed up with being ignored. So now you have a voice, a loud one, so use it.
You said that you like helping each other, sharing good experiences, and help others avoid bad ones. You said you wanted to be a community, so we did EVERYTHING you asked for, and made a University Community, or Unity.
Then together, we break the mould, ‘We pay YOU for using Unity SU’. 70% of the money made through advertising is shared with you. We use the rest to make the app better for you, creating and adding in the features you’ve asked for. Even better, Unity SU is free of charge to download and use, and always will be.
You see, together we have to start somewhere. This is it.
The more events, the more feedback, the more products for sale, the more news announced, the more rewarding it will be you - and for others. Here are the keys, start the engine, make it happen.
And it’s all yours free, no strings attached, no joke, no ifs, no buts. Like you said, no subscriptions, no commissions, nothing. Ever. Finish. Full stop. And that’s one heck of a promise.
Unity SU, at last something that makes sense; ‘education shouldn’t be a debt sentence’
Debt, a burden we assume so easily and is demanded of us at every stage of our financial existence.
Why is it this way? Why is money and debt the restricting factor of so many endeavours, the impossible hurdle of so many dreams and the accepted norm of our society?
Almost at no stage in our education are we briefed, guided, or instructed to navigate the numerous financial terms, or are even taught basic budgeting skills in order to successfully manage a hard earned, scarce resource – your money.
Substantial debt was once something taken on by choice, usually by companies who wanted to expand their businesses, invest in the education and development of the skills set of their work force, or by securely employed people who wanted to buy a house.
Grants for education were unapologetically removed and those who strive to better themselves through a university course, have been left with no choice but to assume on average £44K of debt just to be educated in our wealthy modern society, with little guarantee of a secure job at the end.
It would seem that there is no end in sight for this average figure to decrease, as tuition fees are always on the rise and interest rates play their part to maximise costs.
At Unity SU, our motto is ‘Education shouldn’t be a debt sentence’.
A small, determined group of individuals have been working with students to create a new benchmark in social media. One that will assist you in your university career free of charge and once we have 100k users, we will pay you to use it.
By sharing 70% of our daily advertising revenues with everyone active on Unity SU that day, every day.
As a student, you’re very valuable to most companies across every industry.
They get you to become loyal to their brands, bank with them, eat and drink at their outlets, wear their clothes and shoes, buy their sports equipment, use their phones, run those phones on their networks and well, you get the idea. You are the future returning custom for every company there is and they want you to choose them and no-one else, early on, so they can retain you.
At Unity SU, we’re going to make sure that we use this to your advantage, and the money created by their interest in you, is paid to you. All you have to do is download and use our app. No catches, no purchase required, we don’t want your money, we just want to even to playing field a little and get corporate monies back into your pockets.
By downloading Unity SU you are helping yourself and students across the UK. We’re building a network that can bring ever increasing revenues, offers, deals and momentum, as well as creating a network of likeminded people who have a natural interest in getting to know each other.
The more members Unity SU has, the more we can do to create and distribute revenues amongst the users.
