    hey guys,
    this may be a silly question but when you pay for your accommodation with your loan/grant does it automatically go out of your bank account or do you have to take they money out and physically pay for your accommodation each week? :confused:

    You pay it at the start of each term. They arrange it so the payments for your accommodation are due the day or two after your loans go in, then you just pay it off. You won't have to budget for rent weekly.

    You can set up a direct debit so it automatically leaves, but it doesn't work just like magic

    Well, some unis might let you pay cash but that's really not a sensible option. There's a limit on how much you can withdraw from cash machines so you'll either have to visit a bank or spread the withdrawals over several days - then you're carrying large amounts of money around which could easily be lost or stolen.

    you wont get anyone come and tell you if thats what you mean, my uni had an online guide but with online banking setting up a direct debit is pretty straightforward. if in doubt ask your parents to show you before you leave.
