National student money week – Loaded

National Student Money Week is almost here. Between Tuesday 12 February and Friday 15 February the Student Finance Centre will be out and about around the Student Union with events and information covering everything to do with students and money.

Visit our website for more details or follow us on Twitter @UoP_Money.

Tuesday 12 February

Cooking Demo

The Student Finance Centre will be joining forces with the University Catering team to show you how to cook good food on a budget. Watch the Head of Catering Nick Leach and his team cook up a number of easy and cheap dishes which you can then of course eat for free.

The demo will take place outside of the Library entrance on the 12 February between Midday and 3.00pm so come along and watch the masters at work, eat free food and take away the recipes.

Wednesday 13 February

‘Cash’ Wednesday

Wednesday is all about finding out about the money issues that relate to you as a student. Find out about credit scoring, loan sharks, bailiffs and a lot more. We will also be joined by careers to give you advice on part-time work and putting together a CV.  We will be located in 3rd Space between midday and 3.00pm.

Thursday 14  and Friday 15 February

Two day mini money festival

To finish the week we will be having two days of money related games, competitions and prizes and for the first time we will be running a swap shop (see below for more details on the swap shop). We will also be joined by the Students’ Union, Housing and Chaplaincy who will be getting involved in all of the fun.

Student swap shop

The idea is simple; you exchange your unwanted cds, dvds, books and clothes for a voucher and then you exchange your voucher for something you want.

You can bring your items to the Student Finance Centre to exchange for vouchers, or come along on the day. Our office is located on the second floor of the Nuffield Centre. Please note we cannot accept electrical items or mobile phones.

The swap shop will be on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 February between midday and 3.00pm, outside the Student Union by the cash machines.
