    How much money do you have for uni per week? After your rent etc has come out. How much is left for food/socialising etc. I have about £16 a week so obviously that's all going on food and maybe a pint

    About 260 a week.

    Being one of the 25% of people who live with parents might be cringy but there's nice benefits to go along with it.

    Then again a lot of it just goes into a saving account and I'll be paying back my loan on graduation so real disposable income is much lower even if realistically I can spend what I mentioned if I wanted to. Merely a hypothetical budget if I divided it into weeks after adding a small part time job and contributing a bit to household costs. In which case we're down to ~100-120. Just saving up for a car deposit to take a lease atm, the rest goes on general convenience and the odd pub.
