how much have you saved for uni?Watch
It has *real* interest, I think (so it goes up with the rate of inflation and you pay back what you borrowed in real terms). You don't have to pay it back until you earn a certain amount but I believe you have to fill forms in to postpone it and some people got confused and ended up paying back too early because they didn't read properly!
£12000 is bad enough, I'm just glad I won't have to eat into my bank overdraft or any credit cards.
Fees = £1000 a year
Accommodation = £1000 a year
Other stuff = £2000 a year
Summer income = hoping to earn around £1000
so i reckon i spend
3300 on rent
1800 on living expenses and everything for a 30 week term
(3120 if i do that when i'm at home as well but that figure is too scary so i'm ignoring it)
So i need just over £5000 a year for university
I get a £4000 loan and try to earn about 1500 from holiday work adn then get about £200 from both easter and xmas holls. So hopefully this year i won't need to go into my overdrat but i'm feeling a bit broke this week cos i had to give a £100 deposit for next years rent (staying in halss again) and a £60 quid ball ticket.
how did you get your accomodation so cheap.. mine is 3300 for a catered hall. Wish I had your discipline with spending £35 a week cos mine is closer to £60-70 inlcuding everything like xmas presetns for my family, books, transport and food etc
what uni are you at emom?
Plus my rents are planning on going away a lot.
I'll be workign for my dad, fixing building computers 4 hours a week and I'll be getting £100 for tution fees a month & £200 for living fees.
Plus I'm hopefully workin in Eurocamp this summer... getting paid £102 a week for 8 weeks, with flights and accomedation inculded and I'm hoping to save half of that. So hopefully about £400 for Freshers week p*ss ups!
and i thought i'd be able to save up loads for uni!
