I'm starting to think about my uni finances and stuff as I have to choose my accommodation asap and I'm just trying to work out how it will pan out......... I'm a bit concerned! As I understand I'm gonna get about £3000 student loan. Now for a start there is tuition fees to pay, and my halls are gonna be £3600, which is more than my loan before I even start on general living costs which will obviously run into 4 figures. It just don't add up, obviously you have an overdraft limit but in year one it's not that much is it? I'm a bit concerned about where all this money's gonna come from, I mean my parents won't let me struggle but I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to be self-sufficient and not wanting to have to ask people for money. Can anyone shed any light on things?
