    Need finance, scholarship, bursary advice for my 20 yr old American flat mate.

    Just signed off on a house for next year but if they don't have the funds then the other flat mates & I have to cover it.

    They're Currently looking for a job but can only work 20 hours a week as they're from America (does that include summer as well?)

    Their grandparents are paying for the first years tuition but won't pay for second or third year

    Father and mother are divorced, mother has okay job but won't give any money, father is paying as much as he can afford to for accommodation but is struggling to keep up

    Currently getting by on savings from working as a nanny.

    You might be able to request funds from your university. They tend to have money set aside for situations like this. It might be worth asking.

    Are they going to be able to continue the course next year?..
    I know at my uni (and many others) international students are required to show proof that they have enough money to support themselves..

    And yes I do believe it includes summer with the working hours
