    How are you managing this? I'm on the verge of finding out if a get into university in Sweden.
    I have a brother there who tried to work to support himself while studying a Bsc, but dropped out due to the enormous pressure student loans take off you financially.

    Has anyone did/do it? How did you finance this, was the work/life balance sustainable?

    I may have to go back to UK college for a year to get better grades if I want to study in NL and thus, be eligible for a student loan.

    Thanks!

    To study anywhere without a maintainance loan you really need significant savings to support yourself already, well off parents who can support you or be lucky enough to get a rare scholarship.

    The savings I have, I work full time, but it'd be nasty seeing that money slowly sift away being only topped up with a 20/25hr week job. Doesn't seem to be sustainable.
