    I'm not a student but a parent! I just wondered how much, on average, students spent a week? I'm just trying to work out a budget for when my daughter goes.
    Thanks

    I am not yet a student, but will start uni next week. My budget will be about £200 per month, £50 a week. That is everything from food to entertainment, But if I do find and can manage a job while at uni the budget will increases or it will go in the bank.

    As for freshers, I am not sure, I do have some money saved in the bank, so we will see. However I am planning not to spend over £100. I don't want to rely on my parents so, I hope I have budgeted enough. fingers crossed.

    Depends where... London is more expensive than, well, anywhere.

    Most unis have a page with typical costs of living for their students.
