    For me, self-catered always wins. I hate the idea of having specific mealtimes and if you miss your slot you'll have to waste money buying food when you've already paid in advance. Also means I have more control over what I eat, and it's generally cheaper than self-catered + groceries.

    You can take out a maintenance loan which can be used to contribute towards accommodation fees/living. You are entitled to a basic amount and then anything above that basic amount is based on household income.
