I am really unsure what Durham college to pick in terms of which will give me the fewest troubles.
I already have picked Collingwood but I did the Student Finance calculator (https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-calculator) and my maintenance loan is pretty low. I would have to work for 7 months (of my part time job) to pay the rest of my accommodation fee (of £ 7,171 per year).
However it is fully catered so I don't have to pay for food?...
And there's St Cuthbert's which is closer to my course department (philosophy) but it is self catered.
I only have to work have a month to pay the rest of my accommodation.
But assuming the cost of food is £30 per week... it would cost £1080 per uni year? so I'd have to work 4 months.
Would it be better to go with St Cuthbert's?
I'm not entitled for any bursary's of scholarships also.
Are unis responsible for your grades?
