    Your loan is paid termly. You will receive the payment dates when you get your letter confirming your loan. However, you won't get your first payment until you've actually enrolled at the university.

    If you're getting student accommodation through halls you will usually pay for this termly, but you will usually need to provide a deposit up front to secure your place before your loan comes in. Your uni will usually supply details when it's time to apply for halls. If you live in a private rental, your landlord will usually charge rent monthly- again you will need a deposit and probably your first month's rent up front, as well as any agency fees.

    If you don't have any savings at all, and your parents can't/won't help, I suggest getting a summer job once you've finished school, and a credit card or overdraft for emergencies.
