Here's what some of our colleges had to say...

Greenhead College

The PayMyStudent software has transformed our whole bursary process from applications to payments. With the ability to contact students promptly and efficiently, the software enables us to complete/approve applications, arrange refunds and pay students.

The system is easy to navigate and provides the information needed at the touch of a button. Our bursary and attendance office are now practically paperless, due to this easy to use system. Support is friendly and always to hand if we need assistance. PayMyStudent has proved to be an excellent product and we would highly recommend it.

Jennifer Mumford-Lloyd, Student Registration & Bursary Manager

Oldham College

The system itself has created a lot of efficiencies within our Student Finance team, streamlining the way we deliver payments to our students and helping us deal with them more effectively, as we have instant access to their student finance records so we can answer queries quickly.

The PayMyStudent team are always on hand to support us and are very receptive to suggestions on enhancing the system – many of our suggestions they have listened to and where possible implemented.

Sarah Roberts, Student Finance Co-Ordinator

Sir John Deane's College

PayMyStudent has improved the whole application and management of the 16-19 Bursary fund saving time for College staff and giving the student applicants a faster response once they have applied online.

It’s easy to use and provides information quickly and easily. This is our second year using PayMyStudent and I don’t know how we managed beforehand. The Support team are great providing a fast and helpful service, all in all an excellent product.
