This Debt Awareness Week, join our Student Money Adviser Carl for this virtual drop-in event.

We want to encourage our students to talk about debt, and this is the perfect opportunity to get some one-to-one support if you’re worried, or just not sure where to turn.

We’ve worked with StepChange to create a referral portal to make the process of seeking debt advice easier for our students, so if you’ve got money worries and you’re not sure where to start, drop in and let us know what’s going on.

He can let you know who StepChange are, tell you about the work they do, explain the debt advice process to you, and refer you to them if you feel it’s something you’d like to do.

He can also suggest other support within the university which you might benefit from.

Here’s some quick instructions on how to get involved:

  • We would never expect you to talk about your finances in front of others, so we’re operating a lobby system so you can be sure you’ll be receiving one-to-one support.

  • When you join the call, you’ll join the lobby, and when it’s your turn you’ll be admitted.

  • Once you’re in, let us know what’s going on and we’ll offer you guidance on steps you can take to improve your situation.

  • Finances can be complex, and we expect this event to be busy, so if your query or situation needs a bit more exploration, we might ask you to book a longer appointment on another day so we can make sure you’re receiving the support you need.
