Debt

In debt and having problems managing money?

Students can find themselves in debt for many different reasons and sorting out money issues can be daunting and feel too much to deal with.  

ASK can help you if you are: missing payments, getting phone calls asking for money, considering or have taken out a payday loan, have received letters from the University threatening withdrawal. 

It is important you get advice from a source you can trust. Never pay for debt advice, there are charities that will advise you for free and will advise in your best interest!

 

The following organisations can provide you with free advice. They are all free, confidential and non-judgemental:
