Haha, yeah that may be so. But you have £5 entry as well don't forget. I think my problem is that I don't get drunk enough before I go out.

I'm not at uni yet but i currently live on £200/month. I usually spend £20 on food a week and the rest goes on whatever (used to be mostly travel, but seeing as college is finished it's now mostly spent on booze ). Actually thinking about it i waste waaaay too much money lol.
As for books i ain't gonna buy any until a few weeks in when i've had a look through the recommended ones/talked to a second year about which ones were most useful. I'll then try and get them second hand, i'd borrow them but i'm awful at returning them on time and don't think i could handle the fines

Ive been trying to work out how much i'll need a month (minus accommodation and tuition fees) to have at uni.
Ive read the recommendations but some of the figures seem overexaggerated to me! I wanted to ask how much do you guys spend a month at uni for food/sport/books/transport/drink etc please?
At the moment, Im thinking around the 300 quid mark a month?
My shopping budget was £50 average at Mark and Spencers. £300 a month is enough, well enough, i'd say try if possible to minimise it to £150 - £200. Depends how well you want to manage your money, i spent £7300 in one year (minus accommodation and tuition) and it shows i wasted alot of money and could have bought a car.Last edited by 2Av; 15-08-2009 at 15:09.

With no parental help, but with all of the loans and grants that Student Finance give me, I worked out my budget at about £77 a week.

I'm going for £50-60 a week, which I recon I can manage as I'm good with money.
