Depends on your lifestyle - £10 should just about get you your food.

In my case, it also includes social life...

People tend to give me a lot of free drinks when they're drunk, and substantially more when I'm drunk.

I am getting £3016.65 per term (2 instalments of £1508.32 per term).

I haven't worked out how much I will have to spend per week because I don't know how many weeks I'm at uni. I also have £100 p/w coming in from my weekend job.

EDIT: I think it works out as £280 p/w, of which £100 goes to my rent.

I worked it out... full loan and grant... £1500 bursary i think..

Parents paying Accom. for 1st year anyway... i am going to try and save a bit for second year... depends on how family business goes... i will probably have to pay my own accom in 2nd year... on plus side you dont party as much in y2! (so im told)

i could spend £120 a week and not upset overdraft.. but my plan is to stick to under £80 and keep some so i can visit my brother who is moving to San francisco next month.

I want to take up a couple of sprts so will probably blow a bit in first few weeks on kit.

Aww, i just looked back on the thread where you did all your calculations, and you actually worked out i'd have £270 a month.

Ah well, i'll have to cope somehow.. :rolleyes:






How do you work it out btw? I looked over my forms earlier and i don't understand how you worked it out :|

screw budgets, I lived last year by just taking money out as needs arose and am now only 400 quid overdrawn, and thats nearly all from travelling round europe this summer (though to be fair my terms are only 8 weeks long). Odds are you're not gonna manage to max out your £1000+ overdraft in a term, so just spend what you want and get a job in the holidays to pay back any excess. Might aswell spend the money now while you can enjoy it rather than on mortgages and stuff later!

I probably added up all the money you would get, took out the accommodation fees, and then divided by 9 (for 9 months-the usual length of the academic year). Its how i do mine.

where it says plusadd that onto the previous amount, where it says less loan, minus that from your total so far...

Surely theres a total sum on it somewhere?

But where it says less for grant, it means your getting that money as a grant not a loan.

Do the calculation of

'loan subject to income assessment' MINUS 'loan substituted for grant'

Then add it to the original loan amount.
