If you’re going through unexpected financial hardship or need some finance advice, then the Student finance team within Student Services at the University can give you the neccessary advice to suit your financial needs.

 

The Finance Advisers offer drop-ins at the following times in the Infozone:

Mondays 12:00 – 1:30pm

Thursdays 12:00 – 1:30pm

There’s no need to book ahead, but let the Infozone know if you want to speak to an adviser and get yourself on the list. The list may close early if its busy.

You can also book 1:1 appointments with the finance advisers here.

 

The University has access to Blackbullion which provides students with a budgeting tool and guidance on student loans and preparing for university. For log-in details, get in touch with the Infozone or the Student Finance team at the University.
