Our annual campaign, National Student Money Week, is returning for 2023! Given the ongoing cost of-living-crisis, we are focusing on supporting our fellow students about making the most out of our money. We – a current and a former Money Mentor – will share our experiences with our previous National Student Money Week campaigns and introduce you to this year’s campaign.
National Student Money Week 2021: Expect the Unexpected
In our 2021 campaign, we shared our tips and tricks on how students could go about facing an unexpected financial situation, from scams and housing to emergency funds. We enjoyed collaborating with King’s Positive Peers to virtually talk about our themes on Instagram live. Not only were we sharing information with students, but we too learned a lot about how to best prepare ourselves for unforeseen situations that could significantly affect our financial and mental health.
National Student Money Week 2022: Sustainable Spending
Throughout our 2022 campaign, we shared various blog posts on themes ranging from banking and cryptocurrency. Given the rise of digital revolution, more people have been using things like online banking and cryptocurrency. By doing independent research, our Money Mentors team sought to share some of the basic knowledge on these novel areas related to money. We enjoyed engaging with students on various money-related topics that are particularly relevant today!
