How much to top up?
Hi, DS1 is going to uni in sept. We have just paid the deposit for first year halls (It has to be these halls and anyway there wasnt really anything much cheaper )cost is £8228 for the year (44week contract) The maintenace loan is £9200 ~ however my son will only qualify for the lowest amount. Our top up will need to be £5327 to birng it up to the maintenance amount. But my question is how much more will he need to get through the year!!!
he will have approx £1000 left from the loan plus top up.
I really have no idea what a student would need week to week? DS hasnt got a job, has autism and mental health issues and really doesnt spend very much. So im not v hopeful that he will manage a job and uni especially o begin with.
Can anyone help me with rough a idea?
is £50 a week to stingy?
could a student manage on that ok?
