Welcome to the "Loans For Student" News Section. Student finance is one of the most dynamic areas of finance and there is always new changes that we love to write about for our readers.

Despite tuition fees rising to over £9,000 per year a couple of years ago, research has shown that this hasn't deterred students when it comes to applying to study at university, with application numbers rising and applications from disadvantaged students going up markedly. Well, strike me down with a feather. Is this actually surprising to anyone, really?! Let's break this…
If your car was to break down tomorrow, could you pay for the repairs to be done immediately? If the answer to this question is no, you’re not alone. According to research from credit firm Experian, over fifty per cent of people under the age of 36 wouldn’t be able to pay an unexpected bill of around £200. You’d be…

Stay at home mums can earn money too

Stay at home mums (or dads) we salute you! No, we really do. It is one of the hardest unpaid jobs that you will ever undertake and can be both isolating and emotionally draining on any given day. It can also make some people, especially those that were used to working before their bundle of joy arrived, feel like they…
Smart meters are the new big thing that everyone wants to push onto you. You can’t go ten minutes without seeing an advert on the TV telling you how it will save you a bundle of money and the government have made it clear that they want everyone to have one by 2020. And I don’t think you could be…
It is something that most young people aspire to have accomplished by the time they reach a certain age. They want to have a solid and secure job, have started a family and own their own home amongst other things. Unfortunately, however, it is looking less and less likely for the latter to be achievable for the many hard-working twenty-somethings…
It’s nothing new to read reports of how hard it is to get on the property ladder and it certainly isn’t a new trend for mum and dad to step in and give their children a helping hand when it comes to deposits and selecting a good first home. In fact, it is now so much of a ‘done thing’…
It’s an exciting time for both teenagers and parents alike when a child reaches 17 years of age and they can start driving lessons and make the great leap into independence. It’s an even greater feeling when that said child passes their test and they, along with parents, can rush off and select a new car to drive around in.…
We’ve all been in a position where money has been tight and we’ve had to swallow our pride and ask our parents for a bit of cash to get us through until we either get paid or get on an even keel. University, in particular, is a time when money is tight and parents will more than likely be called…

Can Shopping Late Save You Money?

Are you a last-minute kind of person? If you are, you might want to try this tactic for saving money on your shopping. It requires discipline, but then, doesn’t everything worth doing? Supermarkets always want to sell as much as they can, and price things accordingly. Fresh produce is problematic, because they want to sell for good prices, but they…

Degree vs. apprenticeship

Ok, so the biggest talking point surrounding university these days is not the quality of the course and what opportunities it will open up after graduation, but instead whether the cost of tuition fees is really worth it with regards debt and whether the job at the end of study will be financially viable. According to the latest figures that…

Dipping Into the Bank of Mum and Dad

Much has been made recently about the Bank of Mum and Dad. Recent research discovered this bank is the ninth-largest lender in the UK when it comes to loans granted for mortgages. This doesn’t look set to change anytime soon, either, with house prices still increasing and no sign of wages catching up. Last year (2016), some £5 billion was…
Are you a college leaver or a student who has just finished their university course and are thinking about going travelling? If so, you’ll be one of thousands of young people who have realised that they are only young once and want to see the world. As with anything though, what about the cost? Where will the money come from?…
Information has come to light which shows that university students could now easily have a near £55,000 debt hanging around their neck by the time they leave university. This is partly down to the cost of tuition fees rising to above £9,000 per year (which is ridiculous in itself) but also because interest rates on those said loans have gone…

The Saving Student

Are you a broke student? If so, you are not alone. In fact, being a student and having very little money goes hand in hand and it is something that must be dealt with on an individual basis. Some people are better than others at managing their restricted income, and sometimes, people have to go above and beyond to make…

Be a good money-saving student

Financially speaking it has never been harder to be a student. Tuition fees are at an all-time high (and could still rise whilst the Tories are in government) and the cost of living with regards things such as heating, water and general grocery purchasing is at an all-time high too. We feel for you. No doubt you will know many…
Students are not known for their riches, in fact we often write about the difficulties that students face when it comes to funding themselves through university and budgeting ever stretched finances. That is why it is always positive to hear when a new idea comes to light which will help to ease the financial burden on people that are struggling…
We’re well aware of the plight of students – from a financial point of view anyway. We very often write articles about how best to save the pennies whilst studying away from home and are constantly on the lookout for tips and ideas that might make life a little financially healthier for those who are struggling to balance university life…
The current cost of studying at university is already at an all time high - so much so that it is having an impact on the numbers of people wishing to study further. Many potential students have already walked away and looked to go straight into a job and train in the workplace as opposed to spending £9,000 per year…
