    Durham seems to have relatively few scholarships and less financial support compared to the other universities I have applied to, and considering that it has one of the highest living costs, people from low-income households are understandably hesitant.
    You get my pain! My financial situation is a bit messy at the moment, so I either come under the £25000 bracket, or my household income is around £50k (for complicated reasons)... Either way, I can't really afford Durham.

    I should open a charity on my behalf :laugh:

    £50k and you wouldn't be able to afford Durham?! How on Earth am I going to cope (even £25,000 is a lot).

    Hi, got my place at Hatfield yesterday, are most people thinking of staying on a residential basis for the post-offer visit day or not?
    I've been allocated a place at Hatfield too and am doing the residential post offer visit. What course have you applied for?

    I don't disagree, but I think that it is those who come from middle-income households that truly get the short end of stick. Coming from a very low-income background myself, I know I get a larger sum in grants/loans that someone from a middle-income background, as well as the £2k knocked off accommodation; I can just about afford Durham with all that. In comparison, someone from a middle-income background won't get as much financial support but, unlike someone from a high-income background, will most likely not have huge sums of money available to finance their education. They end up left in a kind of financial limbo.

    So I do understand where you are coming from, but I do think in some ways it is perhaps harder for someone from a middle-income background to finance their education.

    If I go to university I've been told that I'm on my own! Something the government doesn't consider in terms of loans

    Quite possibly, if I can find something to do in the gap year It can be stressful to reapply, but after December it would be
