Information session on college loans

By Esther Hayden

Wexford Credit Union is hosting an information session on college loans at Wexford Library on July 18 at 7 p.m.

The event which is free will focus on the student loan programme offered by the Credit Union for 3rd level education.

Once the leaving cert results come out and the student receives their letter of acceptance from their college choice, parents often find themselves asking: How much will I need to borrow?; When should I apply?; What do I need to provide?; What does being a guarantor mean?; How quickly is the loan granted once applied for?; How does the loan repayment work?

Assistant Loans Manager Brigitte McLaughlin from Wexford Credit Union will be there to provide excellent advice. Last year Wexford Credit Union provided assistance to almost 1,000 students.

Also included on the night will be a talk on mental health by Niall O'Muiri of Wexford Mental Health Association. Niall is a retired mental health nurse who has put three of his own daughters through college. He has visited schools in County Wexford giving workshops on mental health. To book your place please call 053 9196760.
