First of all - hello everyone
I'm a Polish student and I've been seriously considering Aberystwyth as my choice of university. I've already applied and am going to give the scholarship exam a go.
My biggest fear, though, is living there when (or if) I get a place at the uni.
I've read about acommodation being a problem in Aberystwyth, but it doesn't affect me on my first year I guess.
What I'm worried about are prices and salaries there - is it possible to live off the money you earn by yourself and study at the same time? I don't know much about earnings and fees in the UK so I'm not really sure if I can safely manage there on my own, without relying on parents' money. I would like to find a job as soon as I arrive and I probably won't have to pay tuition fees (only accomodation and living, and I'll probably choose the cheapest option).
Long story short: Can I count on my job alone when it comes to living in Aberystwyth and studying at the same time? Is finding a job troublesome there? Or maybe it's easier if you really try hard and actually want to find a job? Is 1 month enough to find a job that earns me enough to survive?
Thank you all in advance
...Should I go back to school?
