    Okay so, obviously my student finance doesn't come through until I'm already doing my course at uni which is all amazing and great but there's a massive issue.

    I've been applying absolutely everywhere to get a job so I can actually move away (as has my partner, we will be moving in together) we've had our CV's checked from multiple people and we've tried everything, literally agencies, the lot. Now its about 60 days until we're due to move out and we still have no money to do so. Neither of us receive financial support from parents, as its simply too expensive for my partners family and I've always had to provide for myself.

    It's getting to the point where I'm almost being physically sick from stress and worry and I can't sleep. I've just been let down again from another potential employer. I have no idea what to do, if I can apply for benefits or anything, likewise with my partner. We've tried so hard to get where we are and I really don't want to fall back now. I know there are thousands of other people in my situation.

    Please can somebody help me?

    Why not get in contact with your university welfare team. You might be able to access their hardship fund. Another port of call might be the Citizens Advice Bureau. Sounds like a rather tricky situation. I hope you get something sorted.7
    Good luck!

    What are you living off of at the moment? Also whilst you aren't entitled to any benefits once you start your course, you can claim JSA at the moment, if your partner isn't a student then they will be entitled to benefits.
