Student Money Week: 20–24 March

SMWsquareUPSUStarting Monday 20 March, the Student Finance Centre is pleased to bring you ‘Student Money Week’.

It’s all about helping you take control of your finances and managing your money, encouraging and supporting you to apply for your funding for next year and highlighting the support available to you from the University and your Students’ Union.

The Student Finance team will be around campus giving you support and information and running two competitions, including our first ever Piggybank photo event where you could win an iPad4 mini.

Our key messages:

  • Apply for your funding as early as you can for next year.
  • If you have any money problems come and speak to us at the Student Finance Centre.
  • Manage your money; don’t let it manage you.

  • Monday 20 March – Eldon building (grab your piggybank for the photo competition)
  • Wednesday 22 March – Cooking demo outside the Waterhole
  • Thursday 23 March – Library foyer
  • Friday 24 March – Dennis Sciama Cafe
