Providing Financial Advice and Support to Students Across the University
Practical Advice While You Study
The Money Doctors programme aims to promote financial capability within Higher Education. This enables students to take control of their finances before they run into problems. Our advisers are equipped with the knowledge, skills and resources to educate and help students and encourage preventative actions.
Throughout the year we run a series of quizzes, workshops and events to increase financial capabilities and awareness throughout the University.
What We Do
Creating and Maintaining a budget is a must do for all students. We provide many tools and resources to help empower you to budget more effectively. This includes, ‘Bakeaway’ our very own food club, many top money saving tips, links to other useful websites and much more. This should help keep your finances in check and help keep those money worries away.
Dealing With Debts
Many students fall into financial hardship because of large debt repayments which are unaffordable on limited student income. From loan sharks to credit cards, The Money Doctors can provide the advice and support required to help you deal with your debts.
Student Bank Accounts
The majority of students are entitled to a student account which usually provides a number of perks including an interest free overdraft. The Money doctors can advise how to compare these accounts to make sure that your account works best for you.
The Money Doctors can provide advice on what benefits you may be entitled to and provide a basic benefits check. We can also actively refer you to a benefit specialist should your query require specialist advice.
