how do i afford uni?Watch
i’m having a bit of a meltdown. my family is considered a ‘high income’ household and so i’m only eligible for £4200 per year for a maintenance loan. my family isn’t wealthy whatsoever (my dad is a teacher and my mum is a social worker) and can’t afford to help with rent or food and it’s not easy to find a job at all. please help me with how people manage to afford everything? i don’t think i can afford to go
I know it's not great how that works. Many universities however do have special grants and schemes that are available to apply for which will help you financially. With being able to afford everything it is important to budget and set money aside that will be needed for the essential things such as rent and food. May I ask what course you are planning to study as there is also bursaries and grants available from the government for specific courses such as healthcare professional courses.
