So I like the thought of keeping on track with money especially with starting uni this September. Is £95 odd a lot to keep to yourself after bills and food?

Also I don't drink alcohol and don't really like the thought of going out "clubbing"

I've moved this to student financial support for you, I had about £80 left a week at uni and I managed to save a fair bit of it to go on holiday so you'll be very comfortable on that amount.

I assume that's £95 a week? if so, yeah that's more than enough. And if it's after bills and food it's far more than a lot have when they go to university. I suggest starting up some savings. You'll be surprised how quickly uni will fly by, having to fork out money for house deposits in your second and third year, possibly even needing to pay rent over summer depending on your situation. And you may want to have some money saved up so that when you finish university you don't have to go straight back to your family home, because you have no money left over to support yourself before you land a job.

I'm so beyond glad that I had the foresight to save money during my undergrad degree, otherwise I would be in such a state of stress and worry right now.

It's a lot.

I had £80 a week after rent and still had a quite a bit left over per week. But I didn't drink that often, go out or go home that often.
