That would still be £26,000 a year - a lot of full time workers live on a lot less than that, let a lone students.

Thank you; I am 2 thousand pounds in debt which I need to clear too but it should still be enough right?

500 x 52= 26,000
You could pay off your debt and have 24,000
I live off about 700/800 a month. So you have plenty

As a student you should be able to save at least half of that which would be £1,000 a month so you have the full amount to pay off in 2 months which is nothing.

If you got rich parents giving you money then why are you even bothering posting here for opinions. NORMAL students live on 200-400 a month depending on how much they pay for accommodation.

My parents give me nothing; I work for every penny I earn

That’s way more than enough! A lot of students are living off less than £0 just because of rent payments! You’re rich AF with those amounts

I buy a lot of fruit and veg and vegetarian/ vegan substitutes from sainsburies so that’s why it costs so much
