    I don't know how much I will get in my maintenance but do we get it all in one go or small amounts monthly?

    I remember in Game that one of the workers they asked if I was buying a console with my loan.

    And how do students go abroad for holidays? I really want to focus on extreme sports but I'm unsure about money.

    Maybe look into getting a part-time job?
    That's the only way I've been able to afford a holiday for this Summer.

    I only work 12 hours a week, but that comes out to roughly £300 a month, so it can make a huge difference

    In the Xbox example it's perfectly feasible that they've had the Xbox for a few years that their parents bought them when they were still at school.

    Like I've just said in my post, a Game employee told that students come in regularly to buy consoles with their maintenance money.

    Yeah, I'm going to have to find a part time job.
