Today, The Money Charity, the UK’s leading financial education charity, announced the official launch of the 2015/16 edition of The Student Money Manual.
With their 2015 report Not free at the point of entry: the reality of paying up-front for university showing many students financially excluded from universities and even average-income families facing serious up-front costs, there has never been a time when students have needed more help to manage their money. So The Money Charity has compiled over 20 years of personal finance expertise into one all-you-need-to-know guide for current and prospective students.
Now in its 8th edition and having reached 400,000 students in 2014/15 alone, The Student Money Manual makes good money management easy and accessible for all students; creating hope of a better, brighter and more financially capable future at Uni and beyond.
CEO of The Money Charity, Michelle Highman said:
“Students and their families are told ‘free at the point of entry’, but our research shows that, without considerable additional funds to those offered by The Student Loans Company, their ends simply cannot meet. In this environment, it is more important than ever that we do what we can to help them plan and budget their way through University.”
“This is why we are releasing our annual Student Money Manual, the essential guide to Student Finance and managing money as a student. It’s a must-read for anyone planning to make their way through higher education.”
The Student Money Manual is out now and available for free here!
