    I would like to know if anyone has any advice for me.

    Basically due to not receiving a large student finance loan, not having a job, and my parents not being able to/willing to make up for the lack of loan, I am completely broke. I can't pay my rent for my uni house over summer and I am just waiting for the landlord to notice. I have used up the last of my money travelling around to job interviews with no success.

    Does anyone have any advice with any options for someone in this situation, can't go on benefits as I'm in full time education so I feel doomed

    Do you have a student bank account? If so could you see about getting an overdraft extension if you haven't already? Are you possibly able to move in with your family over the summer?

    House contacts are a year long almost always so they'd have pay rent regardless.

    Student accounts and overdrafts don't have any interest.

    Even if you go over the proposed amount? Seems too good to be true

    Usually student overdrafts are up to £1500. No interest at all. I'm with Lloyd's and its easy to just click 'extend overdraft' and its done.
