    Just got an email from the accommodation folks, saying that I need to pay a booking fee of £250 to reserve a room, which I'm fine with- but then goes on to give me my rent information which is as follows;

    "First instalment of rent is for a period of 17 weeks (17 x £159) = £2,703 due on 6th September 2013

    Second Instalment of rent is for a period of 17 weeks (17 x £159)= £2,703 due on 14th January 2014

    Third instalment of rent is for a period of 8 weeks (8 x £159) = £1,272 due on 29th April 2014"

    I'm no way gonna be able to pay almost 3k by the 6th of sept... On the UoW's website it says- "
    you will need to make an initial rent payment 8 weeks before moving in. The rest of the payments are broken down to coincide with the payment dates of the Student Loans Company".... I don't see how the email I got reconciles with what they've said on the website, i'm guessing student finance is paid out way after the 6th of sept??? HELP!?!?!!

    You are a life saver! Maybe for Westminster students should get their loan earlier! Will student finance support all Westminster students? Should I call too?

If you have any specific questions then yeah go for it, I only asked them what I needed to know have a look at this though, should somewhat help you out http://www.aptstudents.com/documents

    hmm, they told me that they didn't know when the loans would be paid out 16th sept is when we start our courses, so I don't see why they'd pay the loans on that same day... all my brothers got their loans before they started their course............. i'm confused a little now. but as for that £2,703 you only need to pay £1,272 (so i'm guessing the loans will be paid around the 6th, give or take), then the rest you can pay bit by bit.... they confirmed twice when I called them

    The lady said that to me aswell she's not sure what date but when it's nearer the time call the uni to find out and well we'll have to take it from there anyone know how long till we know we've paid our deposit?

    Im sure that this company realises we're all poor students with no money till we get our loans, I wouldn't worry about it too much, im sure they'll be okay with accepting it a week or two late when they realise that no-one can pay it till the 16th!

    Hello!
    I'm Cosmin and I will be studying Marketing Communication, I will stay at Wembley.
    I am a little concerned about the transport to the university. The Oyster for one month is pretty expensive (117pounds). Any recommendations?

    Another way you could do it, get a student Oyster card I think about £10 and just top it up when you have to x
