    Look on your university website to see if you meet the requirements for them

    And yet another case of "go home student finance, you're drunk"

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    It's not that bad considering I am going to be studying in London. My parents probably won't provide any financial assistance unless I really really need it which probably won't happen since I'm getting enough if I get into that university.

    If I got into my insurance I probably would get something like 60-80% lower than this, due to it's location, the fact I'm living at home and the fact that I wouldn't qualify for many of the scholarships or bursaries at my insurance due to not firming it.

    Finally sorted out my budget I'll have £525.25 a month (minus November and December as I get the bursary at the end of October which will take it up to £725.25) but after I've paid everything out that I need to; I'll be left with £155 a month or £38.75 per week

    Only been awarded the basic maintenance loan so far. I sent the income variance form back via recorded delivery over a week ago and I'm still awaiting the response to see if I'm getting anymore. I haven't had the best experience with SFE... I sent my form of in March and I'm still being backlogged now.

    Maintenance Loan: £4168
    Maintenance Grant: None!
    Bursaries: None!
    Scholarships: Nothing
    Savings: About £7000, but I am saving this up and hopefully won't have to touch it through uni and will use it during my post grad
    Money from Parents: If I need anything they will help me out!

    Accommodation Cost: £5,500 approx, parents are paying £5000 and i am paying £500
    Weekly spend after Accommodation: about £112 a month

    Any money that I don't spend I will be putting into my ISA and any money that I earn from a job that I get while at uni will go there too! I'm hoping to not have to rely on my parents too much and i'm sure I won't have to!

    Using money from remortgaging the house so that they can pay for the accommodation for me and my brother! I really appreciate them doing that and I don't want to have to ask them for anything else, I know that I am really lucky and I'm really thankful for it!

    I've always wondered, what is the average debt for a UK student? (Excluding Scotland) as tuition is free.

    Well if you think about it currently, most people are at uni for 3 years paying £9000 a year, plus minimum maintenance loan of £3500 a year. So that makes a minimum loan of about £37500. The top maintenance loan is about £7000 a year, which would make a total loan of £48000. This is still below but if you take into account all the people doing 4 year courses or for certain courses more years, that would bring the average up, plus the amount you get in London is increased. It seems like a reasonable figure.

    The person who calculated that probably did a bit more research than me and probably had more figures to hand, like how many students were doing 3 years or 4 years.
