    Hey, Im Alexis/
    Im starting Uni this year. Im looking for a job for a few months before uni to save some extra cash. I get 9k loan for tuition. And I get 8k for maintenance. I owe my friend 1k. so I have 7k for uni accommodation and living costs. As my accomodation is 6k, I only have 1k to live off. I know this is not enough. Can someone tell me a reasonable amount of cash needed at uni for 1 year
    Thank you
    should i find cheaper accommodation?

    £1k corresponds to about £20-25 per week - most people will probably tell you that that's enough to live off, and with some good budgeting, it's fine. Depends how much disposable income you want though...

    Generally, as much as possible :lol:
