Student and Staff Wellbeing

Staff Profile

Jamie Turner

Student Finance Adviser


Roles and Responsibilities

I provide information, advice and guidance to students in relation to all student finance matters.  This can include helping students on an individual or group basis with statutory funding, giving presentations, providing budgeting advice and advising prospective students on funding streams available to them.  I answer queries via email and telephone, and keep the Student Financial Support Team's web-pages up to date.

Previous Positions

I worked for Student Finance England for 3 years assessing student applications for Tuition Fee and Maintenance Funding.  I spent a further 3 years putting support in place for disabled students applying for Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA).  This previous experience gave me a good basis to move to Newcastle University where I worked as a Senior Financial Support Assistant before moving to my current advisory role.
