    After rent, £21/month for phone and £25/week for groceries, that's how much I'm left with at the end of every academic year. My parents can't help me out and I've been struggling to find a job at my uni town

    that sucks, how'd you manage to get the money? Overdraft? Im kind of similar in expenses. I don't shop or drink etc so phone bill and food will take up main money.

    Overdraft. I have savings ("for the future") which I top up my bank account with when my overdraft is nearly maxed out. But yeah... Sucks

    What? I thought you could pay back the overdraft till after you've graduated? As long as you didn't go over of course.

    I did but as I have savings I don't get anything. Which means my first house deposit or my travelling plans are looking rather bleak....

    Yeah you can - but there's still a limit on it (500 for first year, 1000 for second and 1500 for third) so if I neared that I had to top it uppppp
