Many students are faced with financial difficulties for different reasons. These may include insufficient student finance to cover the essentials, loss of a part-time job, unexpected expenses such as replacing a broken laptop, paying off existing debt, family financial problems, or a lack of savings.
Some may simply be overspending or have poor money management skills. Nevertheless, the recent increase in the cost-of-living crisis, is placing even the most money savvy students under financial stress.
We understand, the negative impact of financial worries may have upon your mental health, relationships and academic attainment. Whatever the reason for your financial struggles, please don’t be afraid or too embarrassed to seek help.
