'NUS has happily recommended the Directory to students, their families and advisers for many years and this edition is no exception. It's an incredibly accessible way to identify potential funds from a huge range of trusts and charities that might otherwise remain obscure - and that help may make all the difference to a struggling student.' Toni Pearce NUS National President 2013-2015 'This guide understands its audience.
