I've posted this in another part of the forum but I think it's more appropriate here.
I was wondering whether anyone is paying their accomodation here by 3 installments the same as me? Cause I think I'm in a bit of trouble. The problem is the amounts they've split it into are not 3 equal amounts, it's almost 2 grand in the first term, then a grand in the second term, and then just under £700 for the final term I think. However I heard that my loan and grant will be split into 3 equal installments every term, which equals to about 2 grand a term. That means that whilst I'll be okay in the second and third term, for my first term all my loan will go towards the accomodation and I won't have any money left (apart from my savings of couse, which isn't alot). Is anyone else in the same situation???
Can someone clarify something:
What financial help do the SLC provide BEFORE you get to the institution. Surely they know you have to pay accomadation deposits, travel to, etc etc etc.
My loan and grant from last year was split into 3 roughly equal installments. Contrary to what Hana_1987 said earlier we actually ended up with more loan in the last 7 week term than in the other 2 11 and 12 week terms...!! It's usually paid into your account around the first day of term (which isn't including Intro Week)
