For most of us, going to University is the first time we’ve experienced having to be responsible with our money to the extent of paying rent and bills, food shopping and having enough left over to replace those shoes that you avoid wearing in the rain because of the hole in the bottom. And now with the pandemic, the ordinary struggles with money students face have been amplified, and provided us all with brand new financial struggles to burden.
National Student Money Week starts on February 22nd with the apt theme of “Expect the Unexpected” providing advice on financial planning for a rainy day and activities such as Webinars, Competitions and a free e-book.
