    I've applied to do nursing next year at uni.I'm just applying for student finance. I've been asked where I'll be spending most of my time in terms 1, 2 and 3- do I put work placement for term 3 or university (as I don't know anything about my work placements yet)?
    I've emailed my firm choice to ask this question but it's been two weeks and they still haven't replied- any other suggestions on how to contact them?

    I've just started my NHS bursary forms and reduced maintenance loan. Is that all the student finance I can apply for? I'm worried I'll miss something important and then be left with no money to survive :/

    Oh well. I have and they're prepared to help me out but I just didn't like the idea of them being my sole supporters since by my working I'll only be left with about £20 a week for supplies etc. I have some savings put aside too so hopefully all will be ok. Thanks though

    Anything other than rent really, so food, travel and anything I need for school in general. I realise it's probably doable but it'll be real tight

    Depending on your bursary amount, your travel may get covered. Apart from stationary you shouldnt need to buy anything supplies wise. Also look into an overdraft as a back up.
