Money Matters – free financial health checks with a Welfare Adviser

It’s University Mental Health Day on Thursday 1 March. Let the Advice and Counselling Service help you to reduce the stress and anxiety that are often associated with concerns about money, and improve your mental wellbeing. 


We are offering a confidential 15-minute financial health check with a Welfare Adviser to check you are getting all the money you are entitled to, and to help you plan a budget. There’s no need to book – just come to the Advice and Counselling Service, Ground Floor, Geography Building, Mile End campus, between 11am-3pm on Thursday 1 March. Appointments will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. 

You can also come and chat to us on Thursday 1 March in Library Square, Mile End campus, and there will be lots of other activities happening on that day. 

There are lots of useful self-help resources on the money pages of our website. International students can see our international money webpages. This information can help you to: 

  • find out about extra money you may be eligible for from the University Financial Assistance Fund
  • learn how to plan a budget
  • get the best value for your money and make the most of discount schemes
  • take control of your spending. 

You can also watch our short film to see the advantages of planning a budget, and how easy it is.
