Where can I keep up with NSMW?

What is National Student Money Week?

National Student Money Week (NSMW) takes place every February/March and is the UK’s biggest money awareness week for students. 

University is often the first time you’re responsible for large sums of money and have to manage your finances by yourself. And we know firsthand that this can cause a lot of uncertainty, questions and challenges. 

Will my money last till the next loan instalment? What should I be focusing on with my money? Am I doing ok?

NSMW brings these challenges to the surface, providing a platform to address them and help you feel confident and comfortable managing your finances. 

This year, National Student Money Week runs from the 4-8 March 2024. However, our competition will run from the 4-15 March 2024 (NSMW + 1 extra week).
