Many of us have received our final student support payment - leaving us facing the cliff-edge of a three-month gap until our next loan or bursary payment.
Meanwhile we're seeing reduced jobs and hours available in the hospitality, tourism, event and retail sectors – where we often find summer employment.
The impacts of the pandemic have hit us hard, with many not able to survive on our loans and bursaries. Therefore, a summer without any support could have devastating effects.
NUS Scotland has launched a petition, calling on the Scottish Government to make a Student Summer Payment available for all students.
Sign the petition here.
Let’s make some noise through this action and through social media #StudentSummerPayment
If you're struggling at the moment, don't forget you can speak to the Student Money team at the University here.
