    Have you got an offer holder day for Bath?
    Nah but I went to visit recently, I liked the town and the campus was nice but I'm not sure on whether I want to go to a campus uni.

    Not yet, I can't even apply for a loan yet because I don't have an NI number... Yeah it does seem fairly expensive to some other places, but there's not much I can do in my case :lol: Anyhow, I don't think paying off loans will be a problem for engineers...

    I think Prince mentioned his accommodation at Notts is £200/week though?!

    I have a question...

    With Santander, you need to have an unconditional or in first year to be able to create a student account.

    So could I do student finance, link it to my current bank account. Then make a student account with Santander after results day, and change student finance to that new account?

    I'm pretty sure you can change what bank account your SF money goes into at any point so that should work!

    I'm not worried about paying the loans off after but more about actually having enough money to enjoy my time at uni.

    Santander have a fairly decent overdraft I think, they seem popular amongst students

    Well they're only 1500 overdraft for first year compared to 3k with others but I'm not gonna be using overdraft, and then they have a decent amount of interest.

    Free railcard for four years useful for Cambridge and that

    I think I will

    Omg whaaat, what kind of accommodation are you going for?
    I just went for the cheapest possible room, like I'm not bothered about catering or ensuite or whatever, not going to uni to stay in a hotel
    How long is the tenancy at your halls? I think mine is 45 weeks
