    My second son is hoping to go to uni this year.....my eldest has just started. He lives at home and commutes. He is managing his money well. However my youngest will want to live onsite...i have done the estimate with student finance and what he will get will not even cover his accommodation.....am i missing something? I am getting rather worried as we certainly dont have spare £s to fund his living expenses. How does everyone do it??????

    Hi,

    All students' funding can either be income assessed or non income assessed. Parents can submit their income details to us to have the maximum funding available for students based on their income. Also depending on income students may be eligible for a bursary from their university/college.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    We can only advise on the funding available from us. It may be worth posting elsewhere on the site where other students are more likely to reply to see if they can offer some other advice.

    Thanks
