I'm due to start my LPC in September in London with a maintenance grant of £7,000. My firm only allows for study in London. I have no savings and my parents cannot afford to help.
I'm wondering if anybody has been in this position and has been successful in living in London on such a small amount?
Additionally, is the LPC too full on for a part time job?
Oh and you can also ask your bank fr a graduate loan or look at a career development loan.
You have nearly made it so the bank will want to know you. Show them your training contract and they will love you.
I would borrow the money of available and not put any of the LPC at risk because employers might be less forgiving and you may lose the TC. It does happen.
It would be very tight to live in London on that budget but it is doable for a year or so.
You'd have to live like a university student and rent a room in a shared house. You wouldn't be able to afford a 1-bed property.
I think you could easily do a part-time job on top of the LPC. Personally I didn't find the LPC very intense at all.
