The NASMA Annual Conference will be taking place 1st – 3rd July 2024 in Cardiff and we are excited to announce that this year’s theme is Change with Resilience.

Recognising that our sector is changing in a number of ways, our vibrant 3-day event will provide numerous opportunities to learn more about the changes impacting student money advisers, and how to cope with the changing climate of the student funding sector in the UK.

Whether it’s the Lifelong Learning Entitlement, the challenges caused by the continued shortfall in statutory student funding packages, pressures on hardship funds, or the increased expectations of students, we’ll have sessions, panels, keynote speakers and discussion zones for you to take part in.


The Conference schedule is now live. To view it click the link below. We will continue to update with more information of each session as we have it. We will also be releasing the booking form for sessions in the upcoming week so please look out for that email.


The cost of attending the conference will depend on whether you are named NASMA member or external delegate.
