The National Student joins forces with student finance experts for Student Money Week

BigChoice Group’s student publication, The National Student, dedicates a week to providing all the best financial advice to its readers.

The National Student is launching Student Money Week on 8th August 2016 to help students learn how to manage their spending, save better and tackle financial issues. The series of expert content will be published in a dedicated section on the site and promoted via social media platforms.

The week is supported by the Money Advice Service, which is recommending useful tools and offering a range of advice, tips and guidance from their financial experts to help students make the most of their finances.

Payment app, Circle, has conducted research into student debt and paying back IOUs to friends. Keeping to this theme, it is offering tips on splitting bills between housemates without causing any arguments!

Student loan provider, Future Finance, will also be key expert contributors to provide The National Student readers with important information on smarter borrowing. On top of this, a number of universities are offering support to make students aware of the financial help available on campus.

Key topics that the week will focus around include:

  • Advice on bursaries and hardship support
  • Tips on how students can live frugally though deals and discounts
  • Student banking
  • Student insurance


James Thornhill, Head of Communications at The National Student explained the reasons behind why the week is being launched:

“With university costs increasingly soaring and a new level of uncertainty following the EU referendum, it is now essential that students know how to make the most out of the limited finances they have for their university years and their future. Student Money Week aims to point them in the right direction, and with the Money Advice Service on board it will deliver some vital information to our student readers.”

Employers can follow the activity on Facebook and Twitter via #StudentMoneyWeek.
