    You receive your maintenance payment at the start of each term. Then you'll have to budget so it lasts until the next payment.

    It should come through a few days after you enroll. Do you have a student bank account? With overdraft facility?

    You'd have to get another job or ask your parents.

    If you get a student bank account it should come with a free overdraft. Many students rely on that to fill the gap.
