    Hi, I'm wanting to take a foundation diploma in art and design course in London (CSM) when I'm older but I've heard that there are no student loans for it? How do people who don't already live in London manage to afford accommodation etc??

    Some universities will have bursary funds available for those living away from home and on low incomes (although they're not usually huge). Sometimes you can get charitable grants.

    Most people though live off their parents or their savings/earnings. Foundation Diplomas are intensive courses - you'd normally be expected to be in college for 3 or 4 full days (9-5) minimum plus homework. So working as well would have to be part time and in the evenings/weekends.
