just an idea?
You could very well use a your student loan to pay your tuition fees. Most banks offer students no interest overdrafts over £1000 that could help keeping u going over the first term. You could try to get a part time job as well to keep your finance going. Another idea is to to tell the university about your situation and they maybe able to offer some advise and help. If your finances get really bad you would be elegible for a hardship grant/loan from your university. Good luck.

loans 1st-they are there 1stly to pay ure fes, then rent etc. dont get a cred card unless u have to. its tempting to just hand over plastic, and then if u have debts things can get nasty.

the uni u are going to should provide services such as financial advice that could help you sort stuff out when you get there, bear that in mind for when you arrive

Credit cards have very high interest so I wouldn't advise living off those.

Go through your funds in this order:
Student Loan
Job Earnings
Savings
Overdraft
Hardship funds/grants (You'll be elegible for this once u hit an overdraft)
Bank Loans/credit cards.

You will likely have the choice to pay for your accomodation annually or termly. Termly would obviously be best for your cashflow.

If your from Scotland you might be able to take your parents to court for this via the family law act. Though I'm not entirely sure about this but it is definetly an extreme position to take.

Remember budgeting is important.

I would have thought that if you are estranged from your parents and you would be if you "ran away to university" then only your income would be taken into account in assessing loan. If this is so then you wouldn't have to pay tuition fees and would get full loan. I feel so sorry for you that your parents won't let you be independent when you are over 18.

PlayBunny - What do you want to be when your done with Uni?

If I decide to be an accountant instead of a music teacher, I am going to apply for a Sponsorship. I'd have to work for them for x amount of years.

Do check out the Money section of that site I posted - it will be very useful to you.

Further more, if you can, get self catered halls (assuming that your parents will let you go self catered, some of my friends' parents are worried that if their child went self catered theres a danger of being underfed, and so are actually paying for her the extra required to go catered!), this allows you some degree of freedom (not the sort represented by "nu"), over when you eat, and what you eat.
