Student Money Week Roundup
Funding your way through university can seem daunting, but there is a lot of financial help available if you know where to look. This week, a group of experts have been dishing out advice online to those with questions or worries about how they might manage.
Student Money Week over at TheStudentRoom has seen hundreds of questions posed and answered on a range of questions, from how to get help returning to studies after illness, to funding a postgrad if you’re an international student, from loan eligibility if you live with parents to the cost of a placement year abroad.
Advisers from Student Finance England and other bodies including the National Association of Student Money Advisers (NASMA) have been giving their responses throughout the week on the TSR forums.
Financing your studies is much easier if you know where to look, and Student Money Week has helped to signpost many different funding streams.
Discussions have been held on topics such as:
- Advice for independent students
- Placement and year abroad funding
- Loans – what you can get
- Extra help if you have children or adult dependants
- Disabled Students’ Allowances
There have been valuable exchanges, too, on the core topics that any student will want to know about, such as:
- Are you eligible for student finance?
- General student finance
- Living on a budget
- Repaying your student loan
Student Finance England also hosted a live stream on Persicope for student advisers.

Whatever your circumstances, there could be financial support that enables you to get into study, return to a course after some time away, or keep studying when you fear you might be prevented. The Student Money Week advice could have the answers you need, or point you in the right direction so you know who to ask for help. Take a look – it could be the best thing you’ve ever done for your finances!
