    When a UK student is at Cambridge, and they live in the student accommodation provided, I know that you can wait and pay off tuition fees when you have a full time job after graduation, but can you do it with your accommodation fees too?

    Kind of, yes. If you were born in the UK, or have been here long enough, or something, you can apply for a loan from the Student Loans Company; part of this is a tuition fee loan and is precisely the amount you need to cover your tuition fees, and part of it is a generic "maintenance loan", which you can use to pay off your accommodation or food or whatever else it will cover. If your family's income is below a certain level or you have an equally good reason to potentially require more money, you might be able to apply for extra support from them.

    Thank you.
    Because of my family's income, I could probably qualify for a grant/bursary.
    Do you know any more information about that?
