    Hi!
    I'm really keen to apply to uni through clearing cause I missed the deadlines but i'm worried I won't afford to be able to, as I won't have my student finance (still haven't applied for it) and I don't think i'll be able to afford the accommodation deposit. Would there be any help? Like, would the uni let me wait to pay it?
    Also, do you get the proper uni experience?
    If it's relevant, I want to study advertising, specifically at Bournemouth (but I doubt i'd have a choice where)
    Any advice/help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Have you thought of taking a gap year?

    Have you completed a UCAS application?

    Did you try extra at all?

    My original plan was to take a gap year but I have changed my mind because I know i'll get too settled in a dead end job and not go to uni at all.
    I have completed my application just not sent it off as I won't have enough money to do so until the 25th, and won't be able to apply for student loan till august 2nd (when I get a new copy of my birth certificate)
