The National Association of Student Money Advisers (NASMA for short) today launches the most ambitious and far-reaching National Student Money Week, (NSMW).
The national event, which aims to promote the free help and support available to all students and prospective students, begins on Monday 10 February 2014 and for the very first time covers a 4 week period. The event is supported by Universities and Colleges throughout the UK and has a clear message:
“Manage your money – don’t let it manage you”
Students, and anyone interested in becoming a student, are encouraged to apply as early as
possible for any potential funding which may be available to them.
National Student Money Week takes place each year and is designed to ensure that students, their parents, the media, politicians and the general public get to know about and celebrate the financial support and advice offered free of charge in Universities, Colleges and Students’ Unions across the UK. The four week focus provides an opportunity to take a positive message to the widest possible audience and contribute to the collective voice of those working to improve financial skills.
Events being held in Universities, Colleges and Students Unions across the UK include roadshows, competitions, drop-in sessions and training for staff and students. NSMW 2014 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.
