Ways to get involved during National Student Money Week 2020

It’s National Student Money Week (Monday, 3 February – Friday, 7 February) – an annual event that helps students get the most out of their money.

Here’s how you can get involved:

Sessions are held every weekday between 2-3.30pm (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) and 12 -1.30pm (Wednesday) in the Alsop Building.

University Hardship Fund

Don’t forget that the University Hardship Fund is open for student applications.

Any UK student at the University can apply to the fund if you’re experiencing ongoing financial difficulties or if you have a one-off unexpected financial expenditure during the year that you couldn’t have foreseen. Awards from the fund are normally made on a grant basis and are therefore non-repayable.

Application forms and accompanying guidance are available to download on our website.
