How student accommodation finance works.....Watch
I'm going to Glasgow uni, am Scottish and will be a mature student when I begin my course in September.
Just wondering if and how any funding towards student accommodation works?
Does it have to be in student halls, or can it be through a private landlord?
Does it even exist?
Does it just get added on the the student loan/bursary?
Thanks in advance.
So if you get £5000 loan, you can spend it on a car, textbooks, a dorm room or a private house.
You get no extra, it's all built in the loan and grant amount you get.
The only grant I get that has to be spent in a certain place is my Childcare Grant, where the nursery has to confirm I have paid them.
Probably the same for Scotland, but the amount of loans and grants you get is based on your household income. So there's nothing for specific for rent. It's all just student loan/grant and you spend it how you wish. Of you blow it, that's your choice. So accommodation wise, pick whichever you prefer and can afford with the money SF is giving you. Most students end up working a part time job to make ends meet.
