    where did you get 9000 pounds from?

    No one should be spending 9000 pounds a year on living costs whilst at university.

    I think most of it comes from the wages of the academic staff, when you prorate it across the students that's a lot because these guys are rollin in cash.

    Also running costs like electricity and whatever.

    That's what you were being asked. What do you think you need £9000 for? Where did you hear that you did?

    you do not need £9000 to live on. More £6-7000. If you need to pay tuition fees then it'll vary by uni how much they are

    cause to study in london i thought you get a loan of £9000 and you have to pay it back once you earn over £21,000. When i went to an open day thats what they said that you need £9000 every year...

    Probably a question for 'the university administrator room' tbh... Though some places charge less than 9000.

    Your school should have informed you about student finance... you appear to be clueless on this issue.

    The £9000/year is for course tuition fees. You make an application on the Student Finance Wales or Student Finance England website (depending on where your permanent/home address is i.e. England or Wales) or you can request a hard copy to fill in and send through the post. After that you'll be issued a statement which shows you the loans/grants you are entitled to and what dates they'll be funded to your bank account etc.

    Student Finance/Student Loans Company automatically pays the tuition fees to your university. The maintenance loans/grants (your living costs for rent, food etc.) will be paid directly into your account.

    Depending on where you live it costs around £4000 - £6000 a year to live comfortably. This will all be sorted out when you apply for student finance.

    If you are entitled to grants, DSA and bursaries etc. - these do not need to be repaid back. Only loans.

    You don't need £9000 a year. I doubt they are all talking crap so I think you must have misunderstood

    You can get a fees loan to pay tuition which is up to £9000 then you can get £4,375 if you stay at home or £7,675 away from home in London for living costs. Those reflect actual costs of living. So depending on how you count it you need £4,375 or £13,375 (or a bit less if the uni don't charge £9000 but I think most in London are pretty close to it)
