Students are being urged to manage their money in a week of activities organised by the National Association of Student Money Advisers (NASMA) from 12 - 16 March 2012. 12/03/2012
The aim of the week is to ensure that students know about the advice and support that is available to help them manage their money and to remind them that they should apply as early as possible for funding that may be available to them.
National Student Money Week (NSMW) is an annual event designed to ensure that students, parents, the media, politicians and the public get to know about and celebrate the financial support and advice offered in universities, colleges and students’ unions across the UK. The week provides a chance to take a positive message to the widest possible audience and contribute to the collective voice of those working to support and improve the financial capability of current and prospective students.
Events being held in universities, colleges and students unions across the UK include roadshows, competitions and prizes, drop-in sessions and training for staff and students. With the forthcoming student funding changes, the obstacles to entry to higher education are being discussed more than ever before. NSMW 2012 will play a crucial role in addressing the myths about student funding, at the same time as providing accurate and accessible information and top tips for students
‘It's crucial that students know that they should apply early for their funding. We want to encourage students to use National Student Money Week as an opportunity to find out more about loans and grants that are available and to apply online to ensure their funding is in place at the start of term,’ said Nichola Malton, assessment manager at Student Finance England .
