    At uni I've worked out I'll have £76 PW in the first term, £90 PW in the second term & just a little over that in the third term after accommodation costs
    I also get a £1,000 bursary (just for the first year)
    If I take some spending money (just a little, £150 ish) is this enough?

    yes, you should be fine, especially if your bursary is on top of that

    to be honest you will probably want more in the first and last term (for freshers and to save some for summer in case you can't find a job/cover deposits for next year) but if you have a student overdraft you can go a little over and make it up in term two if need to

    write yourself out a budget of what you are happy to spend on what over the course of the year

    More than enough. Many people have far less than that and still make it work.

    it's enough but try to save some of your bursary as you'll need a deposit for accommodation when you move out of hall.in the second year and that has to be paid before you get next year's money.

    Should be plenty, but expect to spend more than that if you plan on doing last minute social things.
