    Hello

    Please could somebody comment on how feasable it would be to live on student finance alone.

    Here is a situation:
    A student recieveing the largest student loan amount, living away from home, outside of london - £8200
    Living in uni accomodation

    Feel free to use hyperthetical accomodation costs

    Discuss!!

    Far too many variables. At Bristol, undergrad accommodation ranges from £3136 to £7826 per year. If you choose the cheapest then £8200 will leave you with plenty to live on. Choose the most expensive and you'll need a part-time job or regular help from parents in order to eat.

    To add to the above, it also depends on your course and how long it is. A student on the highest loan will also receive a bursary from their uni.
