    hwoever since i live in london and not in halls, they help pay my rent and deposits for my house when moving an stuff. i :love: them
    i'm surprised i dont need their help during term time. i have no job and ive still never gone into my overdraft.

    My parents have said that they will pay for my 2nd and third years if i can pay for the whole of my first year. I have about 4 grand saved so i hope i will. (I have to pay them back when i get a job if anyone thinks im getting away with it lol)

    I'll have to work for my money
    If your parents have no money, you'll probably get the maximum loans/grants etc.

    £0, but if I was in need of money for say a new computer if mine broke, I know she'd do anything she could to find the money. I'd rather save her the worrying though and just dip into my overdraft.

    My parents give me about £70 a week for food/bills/going out etc.

    I apparently have a large savings account which will pay for most of my accommodation and tuition fees. But who knows.

    My Dad wants to give me £1000 per term (£125 per week), but I'm a really independent person and I dont think I'll need any more than ~£50/week anyway

    Anything I dont spend I'm going to save up, and then buy my parents a holiday or something with the leftovers

    My parents pay my rent and I pay for everything else with my part time job. It's this way because according to SAAS my parents earn too much to give me a loan.

    parents give me £50 a week but my accomodation comes out of my maintenance loan. Friend at uni got £200 a month and her parents paid for the accomodation as well. Another friend gets £260 a month and her dad pays for accomodation and tuition fees. It totally depends what can be afforded. The two friends are only children, I am not

    My parents are going to pay for fees and accommodation, and they ~said~ they'd give me food money too, so I'm crossing my fingers!

    True. If you're at a London university and you get maximum loans and grants, then you technically don't need anything extra - actually you'll have £1k or so spare if you spend the lower-end of average on living costs.

    My parents have almost nothing, but they insisted that I couldn't have a tuition fee loan - if they hadn't, I wouldn't be taking anything from them. But because they did, they will have to pay £600-odd a month for five months starting in October and it is going to be very hard for them. Makes me feel guilty, but it's what they wanted.
    I am careful with my money, so I should be able to help them and then pay it partly or completely myself after the first year.

    Despite this, for the next three years I am going to be able to live more comfortably than I ever have before. :fluffy:

    They paid my tuition, accommodation, and about £75/week for living expenses (except in my third year, I paid for most of my living expenses myself).

    For my master's they are paying tuition only.

    I pay international fees (£10k per year undergrad; £12,800 post-grad) and go to university in London.

    They gave me £50 a week in my first term, second term it was £40 as I had less accomodation fees to pay. Last term I was only there for 5 weeks and had enough money for myself to survive on.

    I think it's going to be the same next year, once I've fugured out how much money is left over after paying accomodation and split it over the number of weeks I am at uni they will figure out how much they will give me a week from the money I have weekly.

    I am so grateful for the money it's meant I've not had to go into my overdraft, which is lucky as they can be a right pain at the end of the year.
