    So I've got an offer from Durham and Im hoping to go to St Mary's which is catered.

    Obviously the course is £9,000 but then then the accommodation is £6000. Will student finance pay for all of that or not?

    Im super super nervous because its my favourite college and I don't want my parents to pay for it!

    Thanks

    Your loan/grant will be dependent on your family incomd unless you class as independent. The basic non-income assessed allowance won't cover all your costs.https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/loans-and-grants

    Try the SF entitlement calculator to get an estimate:

    Are there cheaper accommodation options? £6000 is pretty steep and even at zero household income, would probably use the majority of your Maintenance Grant/Loan. You may have to plan fo a part-time job and/or ask your parents to contribute. Non-catered would save you money - cooking isn't that traumatic

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
