    I am 18 years old and going to the Uni of Sheffield in September to study Business Management and have a few questions...

    Firstly I was wondering about finance. At the moment I have 10 hours a week job at my local Tesco express and can swap those hours to a store in Sheffield when i leave but i really don't want to. I despise work and don't want to work in a city i know nothing about. My household income is £38k so i will be entitled to some extra money but do you think it is enough to live off? I am 6ft 8, eat **** loads and like to go out so i'm in a dilemma.

    I was also wondering about which accommodation was best at Sheffield and what the course is like if anyone has or is doing it?

    what you need to do is
    1. get an estimate of your loan and grant entitlement (if you type student finance calculator into google the govt calculator should come up) so you know what's coming in

    http://www.studentfinance.direct.gov..._schema=PORTAL

    thats for students living in england...

    2. find out how much accommodation costs (sheffield probably will have a section on their website about halls)

    3. do the sum to see how much you'd have left after paying for accommodation then divide by the number of weeks

    from that you'll have an idea of a weekly budget, without your job. then you can see if it's enough or whether you'll still need it

    feel free to post the weekly budget on here; it will be a lot easier for people to help you out then

    Hi LouisBoz,

    We look forward to meeting you in September!

    You can plan what money you will receive, by using our funding calculator.
    This will tell you what loans and grants you will get from Student Finance, but also what amount of Bursary you will get from us to help with your living costs: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/undergrad...alculator-2013

    You can plan if this will be enough for you to live off by using our Moneyplanner. This allows you to put in your income and what you might spend your money on during the year. This might help show you if you need to find extra sources of funding. http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/undergrad...s/moneyplanner

    We have a part time job shop here at Sheffield that maybe able to help you find a role that your passionate about. We also have part time jobs fairs, where we invite a range of employers to showcase what opportunities there are to complement your studies.

    Hope this helps, if you need further answers about your course or accommodation there is a Uni of Sheffield sub forum where you can ask other students coming to Sheffield: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=48

    All the best
