I was just wondering how much ppl survive off at uni a week - at d mo ive worked out il av a mere £30 a week 2 live off in d first term. Uni is so god damn expensive iv spent just under a grand already and im 2 weeks from starting uni. No doubt il av 2 use my overdraft 2 survive. Do ppl use credit cards 2? if so which bank got d best rates.
you could always have a part time job - an extra £40 - £60 a week will always come in handy and thats just a couple days working
You can spend £10-20 on food a week, if you do your own cooking and only buy value brands.
Then if you feel you have to get drunk when you go out you could drink before you go as that is much cheaper. Or you could just stick to coke.
Credit cards aren't a good idea, as they have high interest rates and you will end up owing far more than you borrowed if you only make the minimum payments for a while. It's much better to use your interest free overdraft.
£80 I think is a good figure.
i reckon i cud survive off £20 quid for food easily, but i dont kno how much im gona have left out of my loan and overdraft for socialising, i reckon il get a part time job
£80 per week!!!
im hoping about half of that per week!
If your accomodation is catered 7 days a week, how much would people spend eating out?
if i was to live just on my loan then...
my first installement of £1398 - first accom installment £1172 = £226
£226 / 10 weeks ( first term ) = £22.60 per week to live on
o dear - i got to pay £10 per week for my mobile
£12.60 to live on !! this is when a job looks real good - extra £65 per week
Why don't you work during the summer and apply for sponsorship?
im number crunching at the mo...and thinking!
£500 savings at the mo ( plus tutition fees paid ) / 10 weeks = £50 per week + £22.60
= 72.60 per week
+ £65 from work = £137.60 per week - easily live off
i think the key to living comfortable is to save and work
Depends on whether you're an introvert or an extrovert, if you love to go out then I assume the cost would be considerably more. I hope to get by on £10-15 per week as I am in catered halls and thus I have no need to buy food.
To those spending 200 a week; Was that on "going out" or food, clothes etc?
Goodness me. Where did you buy your dinner jacket from? Parents can't have been pleased!
