    Im not sure wether to have a meal plan or no meal plan, basically you get £41 a
    week of vouchers to spend at the hall you live in and main places at the campus.

    Is £41 a week really needed, and you have to spend all of the £41 every week

    I know it differs from person to person but how much do people spend a week
    generally on food with eating well?

    Thanks any help will be appreciated!

    £40 is my maximum spend per week on general shopping for me, my OH and two large dogs - that's food, dog food, cleaning stuff, toiletries etc. I think it's a lot of money to spend solely on food for one person.

    However, are you going to be in catered only halls? If you are, that might match up to what your meals will cost - I don't know, I've never lived in catered only halls, I always went self catered.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
