  • Walsall College was also part of the launch of this campaign, the only FE college to do so. We also provide a credit union, in partnership with Walsave, to help students here at Walsall College save and borrow ethically and sensibly.

    A good idea on the face of it but once again the NUS are really missing out on an opportunity here.

    Why have they not partnered with other sites and money industry figureheads with this campaign.

    Targeting marketing on campus is not going to stop online marketing, word of mouth, TV advertising, newspaper advertising....

    I think the real focus of the NUS should be to join with sites that focus on student money like MSE, SBeans, STS etc. in order to aid the education of students about these loans.

    It's often the case that students aren't aware of help from unis.

    Wouldn't it be better to stop this at the source?
