National Student Money Week
It’s National Student Money Week 12th – 16th February!
This year’s theme is ‘Where I Live’ and we know that, for many students, it is common to struggle financially during their time at university especially when it comes to housing and paying rent! Throughout National Student Money Week the Money Advice & Funds Service will be here to support you with budgeting tips, advice and activities to get involved with.
Created by the National Association of Student Money Advisers (NASMA), National Student Money Week intends to raise awareness of financial capability among students and with support from the Students Union, Salfood and Santander it’s set to be a great week!
Throughout the week we will be in Clifford Whitworth Library daily between 10am – 3pm, where staff from the Money Advice and Funds Service will be available to talk to students about issues regarding their finances. We also have some great activities taking place all week:
