Managing your money

Student voice

My personal finances were in absolute disarray. It seemed financially unviable for me to attend university. The Student Funding Team helped me structure my spending and obtain additional funding so I could attend university and concentrate on my studies.

Wise up to security

The Student Loans Company is urging university students to be aware of phishing scams and not to reveal their personal details online. Students are often targeted with phishing emails around student finance payment dates. The number of students reporting these incidents to the Student Loans Company has increased significantly in the last few years.

Always remember:

The Student Loans Company will never ask you to update your bank details by email 

The Student Loans Company will never ask you to verify your student account details by email

So ignore any messages asking you to confirm your information in this way.

For a phishing guide, top tips and details on what to do if you receive a suspicious email, visit the online security page on the Student Loans Company website.
