What do you think about monthly payments of your student loan?
The NUS and the National Association of Student Money Advisers are campaigning for monthly student loan payments in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. If you think this sounds like a good idea you can sign the e-petition.We know from spikes in applications for the hardship fund that students find the current termly payments unpractical. While there are lots of resources on the university’s money pages to help you budget and maximise your money, the termly payments might not suit financial commitments, such as monthly bills.
Find out more on the NUS website, and have your say by signing the petition.
