We give students practical advice on managing money, financial entitlement and sourcing additional income. Our aim is to encourage you to take control of your finances.

We run a number of activities and workshops during the academic year to share information about money management, and you can arrange a one to one appointment with the Student Money Advisor.

Advice and guidance

We provide you advice and practical guidance with:

Short Term Loan Scheme

Our interest-free Short Term Loan Scheme is designed to assist students who find themselves with a temporary cash flow problem caused by circumstances beyond their control (e.g. delayed student loan or wages). Generally the standard Short Term Loan is £60 in any given week for a single person with no dependents.

National Student Money Week

We participate in National Student Money Week, where universities, colleges and students' unions across the country join forces to promote financial capability and the excellent services provided by NASMA members to students.

During National Student Money Week we hold a variety of events and competitions, such as the chance to win a week's worth of shopping essentials!
