Money Week 4-8 March

We’re supporting National Student Money Week, which runs from Monday 4 to Friday 8 March. The focus of this year’s campaign is on helping you to reduce risks from things like scamming and unmanageable debt, and enjoying more rewards through budgeting and careful spending.

We recognise that many of you are facing pressures with the rise in cost of living and the many scams and offers of debt which students are at risk from. Your financial and wider wellbeing remain an important priority for the University, so we are continuing to focus on these issues to offer you advice and guidance.

During Money Week the Student Advice Service will be visiting your campus, bringing an interactive roadshow to raise awareness of the support available to you and to share their expert advice.

There will also be an opportunity to share advice on how to protect yourselves from financial risk and learn new ways to stay safe by sharing knowledge with other students, and we also have some giveaways on offer.
