No what you dont understand is that i need to give the money to my mum otherwise we wont be able to pay bills and food
My mum doesnt have a job and its only the two of us in this flat before i went back to college i was giving my mum 320 a month when i was working full time but it was a dead end job and i wanted to do something with my life so i went back to college i knew it would be a struggle but didnt expect to be out of work this long! have been applying for everything and handing in cvs and still nothing!!
Most students i know dont pay anything mabye 20 a week they really dont know how lucky they are! My social life has gone casue ive no money last time i had a drink was at xmas!
Looked at my student loan the last payment is not more its the same £425 and i give 200 a month to my mum
So basically im ****ed! going to be 2 months without any money not going to be able to pay bills and food!
Already got a hardship fund from the college to try cover my tution fees which i have to pay for this year but ive still 200 to pay dont have a clue were im getting money to pay that
Will go into college on monday and see if they can help again!
What sort of funding exactly are you getting? You say student loan but if you're getting student loans then surely you are getting the full amounts if you need money that desperately?
As for a job, the best thing I suggest is to take a day (or a few) to go round your area and ask everywhere. This includes not only shops but swimming pools, museums, little rock stalls on the beach etc. Don't just stick to places advertising.
If everywhere says no, you may need to expand your search into other local towns/cities.
I have the maximum amount of student loan i can get which is £5101
Cant get the additional loan because i have previously done an HNC and droped out thats why im having to pay my own fees this year, Im in scotland so should get my fees paid next year
I got extra money from college but that went straight to pay my fees and ive still 200 left to pay!
I have handed CVs into all the small shops round my area and the bigger shops always say go online and check to see if theres any going but there never is! I handed CVs into the shops in the city were college is and still nothing! Ive been doing this since last May when i knew i was leaving my full time job to come back to college!
My mum is on the same boat been out of work for over a year now and only had 2 interviews! She thinks its cause shes too old and most employers wont want to take someone on if shes going to be retiring in about 8 years!
Im just praying that i get a job before i finish up in June!
I presume your mum is on JSA and claiming housing benefit? I can't see how she needs £200 a month from you on top of housing benefit. If she can't afford her house, she needs to move, it's not feasible for you to spend all your student loan supporting your mum. You won't receive an ALF payment if that is what the money is for.
