    Can anyone help!!I live at home with parents whilst I'm studying full time and therfore get just above £1,000 a semester. But this is not enough! I'm responsiable for my shopping, transportation (£6 per day), prescription charges, my phone bill and other direct debits. No matter how much I try this money vanishes so fast after purchasing books for my studying.Does anyone know a way to get a higher amount of student finance when your parents have a high household income that you don't sponge off.
