LMBS Air Guitar Competition
The LMBS air guitar competition was led Justin Lance, a senior member of the Events Management Course team. It was an event organised by the MA Events Management students, for the new first year students. Debbie Holley invited her first year students to attend the event and they made an enthusiastic audience!
The promotional video that the students made is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uP5O3tfPxIY.

Student debt is a major problem nationally, as a growing number are struggling to pay their rent and utilities and many have several consumer credit debts such as personal loans and credit cards. Such burgeoning debts potentially have a severe impact on the student’s ability to achieve their full academic potential, because of the extra mental health stresses as a result of their financial problems. The Consumer Finance Education Body http://www.cfebuk.org.uk/ awarded funding for London Metropolitan University staff Matilda Buckley (student debt adviser) and Debbie Holley (LMBS) to develop an innovative, fun, appealing and thought-provoking educative tool to enable students from a wide variety of backgrounds and with widely differing personal circumstances, to gain financial capability skills.The resulting on-line resource is known as ‘The Student Flat’ and is based on the financial dilemmas of four students who live/meet in the flat.
