    Hello, I'm struggling with big problem.
    In September I am going to study in Cardiff. I won't get any financial help from parents, I will have to pay everything by myself.
    Is it even possible if I would be working only part time, like 20 hours a week?
    Does somebody live like that?

    It depends how much your loan is, how much your rent is, etc.

    We literally can't answer this because we don't have any information. If your loan + wages is higher than your rent and other bills then yes, you can live working part time. If it doesn't then no you can't. Of course if you are not financially capable of going to university then you shouldn't put yourself in that situation.

    20 hours per week is around £600 per month. Providing your loan covers rent, I don't see why you'd struggle. But we have no idea what you're getting so we can't say.

    Forgive my pedantry, but this strikes me as somewhat erroneous.

    Sorry for the lack of informations.
    There is a small chance of getting maintainance loan because I'm not living in UK, I will arrive there in August, I mean I wish so. I will try to apply as a migrant worker.
