    For accommodation would would you say its like, as in first thoughts general stuff what you like dont like.
    Its a studio at around 140 pw for a 44 week contract
    Would this be too expensive to live, would it mean youre not left with a suitable budget after rent bills etc are included and i should receive the full £8200 loan.

    you'd be spending £6000 approximately... in my opinion leaving yourself with £2000 is too little, you can probably get by on that, but I would take a cheaper room somewhere and have more for living costs

    It would be around £6500 max but parents would help with food costs and such i will be working prior to going so will have a fair chunk of money do you think its worth living in a more "glamorous" apartment just for the first year.

    My opinion? Irresponsible waste of money. But that's just me.

    in my opinion absolutely not... I would rather save money and have some flatmates for one, I think living alone will be lonely and you'll struggle to make friends, and aside from that it's just unnecessary, I would much rather than £1500-2500 depending on your city and have that money for travelling in the summer or for a savings account if you genuinely don't need it for living costs
