    That's cool! Have you applied for accommodation and whatnot yet?
    Nope, literally just accepted my choices today. I'm probably going to apply for a private shared bathroom (Hugh Stewart has tonnes of those) as a 1st choice, then en-suite at Jubilee. I'm definitely going catered! I'll apply on Monday.

    What accommodation are you thinking about?

    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

    Just an ensuite room, not catered. The tenancy is 38 weeks at £144/week.

    See, all the catered accommodation is on campus at Notts so I feel it's worth going catered for the social aspect.

    Even though it'll cost £185 - £200/week - bloody 31 week leases!!

    That's cool! I've gone for En suites at St Peter's Court and Raleigh Park, and a standard large at Broadgate park (That's nearer where I'm studying so it's more expensive, the others are near Jubilee but there's a free bus to University Park)
    They're all self catered, I applied Monday! Hopefully I'll find out what I've got soon! My student finance letter arrived on Friday and I've got enough on my maintenance loan to cover all my choices (I think)

    I think mine works out around 150/week non catered, but super short terms so... 4k max a year. More likely to be 3.3k ish

    Oh 38 weeks is decent. Do you feel an ensuite is worth the money?

    That's so expensive omg </3 luckily for me all of the cheapest accommodation is on one site in Manchester but it's away from the main ""campus"" (i hate calling it that because it's just a main road with the buildings dotted around, which is what I like, not really a fan of campus unis)

    Lol I'm borrowing 2,190 for maintenance because I want a round number in total for borrowing.

    Although I could not borrow at all from that, but I feel I might as well. Live in some luxury :lol:

    Question

    How much is 23k ish after the interest we'll have approximately? For the average time it takes to pay it back (idk how long that is, or what the rate will be for us)

    It's at a law firm; I did one last year but at a different firm

    Mostly proof-reading cases, making/checking due diligence checklists, writing articles, etc
    They sometimes used me as a translator too haha

    Will you be doing a summer job?

    Doesn't really matter, how much you borrow doesn't affect how much you repay a year.

    It'll still be the 9% on anything over £21k. So, if you earned £35k you'd pay back £105 a month.

    No I mean the interest on top

    Like if I paid it back in 10 years,how much interest extra would that be compared to if I paid it back in 5? If you get me

    Student finance down damn it was in the middle of it too...

    I feel like I must have made a big mistake somewhere because it's looking far too comfortable
