    Hi,
    So I want to do a art foundation course next year before I go on to do my degree. As I'll be under 19 when I start the course, I know I won't have to pay any tuition fees.

    Since it isn't actually a degree, I'm not entitled to a typical student loan. Even though I intend on staying fairly close to home, I still want to live in student accommodation, however I'm not sure if I could afford this without a student loan. I am wondering what other financial support I am entitled to and how much the cost of student living is in the Manchester/Leeds area, baring in mind I wouldn't be more than an hours drive from home?

    It would be great if there are any people who have personally done an art foundation course and lived away from home to leave a post.
    Thanks

    virtually none as i understand it, you need to self fund your own living costs.
