    Hey guys,
    So I know we have to pay the £550 fee within four days in order to secure our accommodation. However, I have no idea where to get this money from. My mother is not financially stable enough to support me (nor does she even want to), and I'm struggling to find a job. I looked at opening a student bank account early so I might be able to get an overdraft, however an overdraft is only permitted once your term starts and there's already £500 in your account.

    So yeah. I'm lost lol. Does anyone have any idea where else I can search and/or if the uni allows the fee to be extended until we get our loan?

    *for uni of Birmingham btw

    Speak to your uni about it, they can make arrangements
