    Hi,
    My household income is 50-60k making a maintenance loan practically non existent for me due to this. The course itself i'm not worried about as this can all be taken as a loan. But will a part time job be able to pay for rent, food etc for the duration of my time at uni as there is no other way for me to pay for all of this, is there ? I really would like to go to uni but with no maintenance loan possible, can I afford uni ?
    Any information will help,
    Thank you,

    Thousands of people get the minimum loan and cope fine with a part time job. You'll be fine as long as you choose sensible accommodation and budget well.

    I cant see why not. Do you mean that income is yours or your parents? Will they assist? You can het a job to make up the difference.

    And there is also the interest free overdraft you can get from your student bank account.
