Student Loan Does't Even Cover AccommodationWatch
Student loan that I have obviously takes into account my parents income but it's not even enough to cover my accommodation.
Has anyone been in my situation before and if so, what did you do? Don't have family that can help and not scholarships.
Basically you have to pay for it yourself so savings or a part time job. It’s a pretty common situation. If they ain’t gonna help you out. Work out how you yourself are gonna pay it and if you can’t then save for a year and then go. Loads of people manage
Id advise speaking to your university financial advisor. They can tell you about any bursaries you may be able to apply for and there's always the hardship fund too if you can provide bank statements. Unfortunately you might have to get a part time job too.
I'll check out this hardship fund and will speak to an advisor when I start.
