    HELLO!

    If you're a current student (or recent graduate) that has been investing your student loan, we have an opportunity for you!

    A journalist would like to hear from students that have used their loan to better their financial situation - maybe you've put some in a high-interest savings account, or you've bought shares or cryptocurrency with it?

    If you'd like to get involved and your story is used, you will also be paid £100 for your time

    Extra details...

    We'll need you to send over a photo to accompany your story, or alternatively be happy to have your picture taken for the piece

    The journalist will need to speak to you on the phone, roughly for 5-10 minutes


    Please PM me your name and contact telephone number if you'd like to be involved!

    I bought a pair of floor standing speakers with my first student loan. One hell of an investment.

    This is ridiculous. If people actually get enough money from student finance to somehow invest it and still survive clearly get given too much.

    Mine goes straight from the finance company to the university but because I'm in Wales, I got a £1150 grant which is just being kept in my bank.
