    Maybe you don't understand what I mean. My household income (like you said yours was) is way too high for any grants or bursaries. However I am not going to get any financial support from them because the student finance covers it (and besides with me doing an engineering degree we have 25hours contact time a week so there is no time for a part time job). And of course I know youre not Primary School, that paragraph was metaphorical...
    What I was saying was most people I know are in the same situation as me (high income etc) and we are not getting parental support.
    Its a shame you couldnt stand uip for yourself thats all...
    If you can survive without parental support then good for you, but I need that money, and it was an obvious attack on people who have parental support, I don't understand why?
    I did stand up for myself, not sure what you're getting at there...

    So how are you making the numbers add up then?

    If the household income is above the threshold for grants then from what I can work out the maximum maintenance loan is between £3,564 and £4925. Also, if as you claim, your household income is 'way too high' then you would be getting the closer to the lower figure.

    How does student finanace 'cover it' (with no bursary or p/t job), when accommodation costs are in the region of 3 to 4k per year.

    What are you eating/drinking, fresh air?

    I get £3564 maintenance, my accomodation cost a just below that. and its catered. simple.
    So you are claiming that due to no support from your family and no part time job you are going to live off just £3564 .

    Simply not possible, even IF it covers catered accommodation. Catered accommodation only covers 2 meals per day! Then what about other living expenses, clothes, books, personal care/toiletries, a bus pass (£300 ish), etc etc etc.

    Your either not telling the truth or living in fantasy land. :rolleyes:

    Nice to see leicester doing well in the league tables, i've seen it at 15th in the times I think. Imo if leicester was in a better location it would be alot more popular as the actual uni and teaching is of a really high standard.
