    any other options are private loans with horrendous interest, have you used your funding up?

    It’s not that.. I’m just wondering. I applied for student finance in August and I still haven’t received any news regarding my application so I’m scared that I might not get it. Also if in case I don’t, I was just looking for other option.

    Keep trying, perhaps call earlier in the morning. Private loans are pretty much going to be almost as bad as pay day loans so you don't want to go down that route unless you know you ll get money from elsewhere soon.

    Thanks ~ will do that! I’m working 2 jobs but I don’t think that’ll be enough to cover my fees just in case if I don’t receive student finance ! So I was just looking for other options...

    Have you got a student overdraft? That wouldn't be enough but it's something for the mean time

    its when you have a student current account and they allow you to go into a minus balance for no interest, you get 2/3 years after graduating to pay it back.

    I just looked it up and seems like Santander is the best option for student bank account so I think I’ll go for it! But um I was wondering if they’ll allow to to get overdraft if my student finance is still in process? And hasn’t been paid yet?

    Some banks allow it but some don't, you'd have to check with them before you apply.
