    Just wondering. I hope to leave with NO debt at all!, hopefully with a scholarship and working over the holidays, and some help from my parents with accomadation, it is possible

    Also how many of your parents are paying for accomadation? Some people I know are getting their parents to pay all accomadation and all fees.. some arent helping out at all! I think Im in the middle.

    Hopefully after my BA (might do an MA but assuming i dont) i will leave with about 9000-10,000 pounds worth of debt. My parents pay my fees and one term's accommodation and for the rest i use a bank loan (wasn't entitled to a student loan. b*stards...)

    Well my parents are paying for accomadation and fees, and then my loan and part-time/holiday jobs should cover my other living expenses along with a little bit of extra pocket money from the parents. So hopefully I'll manage to get out just owing back my student loans.

    my parents are paying for my living and accomodation fees but only bcos my course hours are so long and i have a 45 week year so there just no time to get a summer job or even a saturday job! fortunatly my tution fees are paid by the NHS, but ill still leave £6000 in debt since im takin out my student loan, puttin it in a high interest account and then using it for a deposit on a house or flat!

    I'll probably leave with between £1200 and £1400. My parents gave me a very little bit this year, and probably won't give me anything next year

    I started my degree in 2004, and think I will be about £50K in debt by the time I graduate.

    Well, I'm getting roughly £3,000 a year student loan, so technically I'll end up around £9,000 in debt. But I've got quite a bit saved up already, so I doubt I'll be too bad. My parents are paying for fees and accomodation (unless I end up in a really expensive one), and I'm paying for everything else. So I'm gonna need the loan! I'll probably try to get a part-time job too because I don't like spending money when I'm not earning any!

    If your parents are paying for accomodation and fees, then you really won't need that much on top of the loan! For a 30 week year, a £3000 a year loan would leave you around a £100 a week!

    I know, but then I actually will be in £9k debt when I leave. If I get a job I can save most of my loan so I'll have money when I graduate. I just like the feeling of money coming into my account, makes me feel less guilty about spending it . Plus I want to do a lot of travelling and stuff in the holidays which will cost a bit.

    My Dad is meant to be paying for my accomm but he has a kid due in Sept so I'm not so sure anymore. My mum won't have any money to pay for me. I should get max loan and some grant though which will help.
    Plus I've saved from my job since I was 14 so there is back up. And I will hopefully work though my first year at least and hols.
    Hoping to have under 7k (loan into high interest savings I think...need to budget still)
