    £30/week and they pay the mortgage/bills for the flat I share with my cousin. Can't really ask for more than that really - I add about £50/week through summer savings and a maintenance loan from SAAS gives me about £90/month. All in all about £100/week for EVERYTHING I need except accommadation. Far too lucky.

    I don't get anything.

    The only exception is if they give my sister anything, I get that (for instance, when she went on hols last month she was given £50, so I got that as well), as everything is equal, but that happens very rarely (she has a job and EMA, and is expected to live off that, as I am expected to live off student loans and my job).

    Mom works with someone who gives her son loads, but he just wastes it on booze, then comes running to mummy when he starves! (I'm not saying everyone does this!)

    After all, I'm an Accountancy student. If I can't manage my money I don't see myself doing very well in my chosen profession!

    Nothing probably, they might give me some if I get stuck but I would prefer to try and be independent.

    Well they'll pay for accommodation and then I'll get somewhere between £50-100 a week for everything else, I think. Hope so anyway.

    My dad said he'd make up the difference between having standard accommodation and superior standard which is like 300 quid. He's regretting it now. I think if i get desperate he'll give me the odd tenner but that's it.

    Not much really, my mum I haven't seen sicne my birthday and the was the first time this year, so not expecting anything off her.

    My Dad normally buys me stuff I need (bed stuff, kitchen things, bathrooms stuff, food every now and then) and sends me £10 here and there if I'm really stuck.

    Over Christmas my nana and dad go crazy and buy me like 4 months worth of food :-D which is nice.

    Parents paid for my accommodation last year. And this year are giving me £400 a month to cover my accommodation and bills, and anything else with what is left over. I'm quite lucky really, but I do only get the minimum loan, so I wouldn't be able to afford to live without the help from my parents.

    I cant get a tuition fee loan this year so my mum has given me that, she wanted to pay my rent too but i told her not to. She couldnt afford to give me much for my first degree though, infact i used most of my loans and placement year wages paying for stuff for the house and bills etc.

    She'll probably also buy me a kitchen full of food when i move, and if i get stuck for money then she will find some from somewhere.

    What's the normal amount people live off? I was told me a 3rd year in Manchester that about £60 was enough, but I was then told by two friends at non-London universities that she was mad and you needed more like £90 a week

    The Norwegian state gives me £12000 to cover tuition fees, and my dad will give me £4000 for accommodation. I will also take up a loan of £4000 to cover the rest of my accommodation fees and for other things.
