In 2012 Martin Lewis of MoneySavingExpert.com headed the Independent Student Taskforce which was made up of groups including Universities UK, the NUS and UCAS (see full operations group). The Taskforce was independent of, but backed by, government and set its own agenda. The aim of this Taskforce was to help future students and parents in England tackle the myths and misunderstandings surrounding the changes to student finance which happened in September 2012.
A lot of the information produced by this taskforce is still really useful to listen to today. You can view some of Martin’s videos below.
