    It probably depends on who the internship is with and what sector.

    If you're not from the South-East your "funding" is generally a big fat middle finger to the face, I've never heard of funding being given out for unpaid internships.

    Nope, nothing. You could always try and get an evening job working in a pub/restaurant to support yourself.

    Have you spoken to the company to see if they can cover your accommodation costs? I think you can receive benefits while you're doing an internship so maybe go to the job centre/google and see what's available to you.

    Isn't there an internship you can get in London? The only internships I can find is ones in London and I can't afford to get the train everyday at peak times/accommodation.

    Good luck!
