Does anyone know how much student loan you are entitled to if you have a child while at uni and both parents are full-time students?

Yeah I go to Leeds its pretty Ubercool , depends what you want catered or non? PM me so I can help you out more. Oh and goin to private halls like IQ is never a good move. Less social, more internationals, all go to different Unis so just stick to Uni halls if I was you

+1 private halls suck im at some owned by unite (not out of choice) and everyone is internationals/old/weird. definately go for uni halls. catered/self catered is personal preference, i definately prefer self catered as its so much more flexible and we get a lounge

Unite are utter cunts. Treating students like nothing because they think they can.

they can though
the charges are ridiculous though and something you dont look into when you first pick them for halls. £80 or something to repaint a wall cause its got a mark on the wall Jawdropping! . Lucky the maintenance guy is pretty safe and let us borrow paint for a day

Deffinatly go for uni halls, private you'll be mixed with differant universitys. Most people in uni owned halls will be first years and obviously go to the same uni. I can't wait to move to my halls truefully ! Laughing out loud

I've got my first one monday, last minute stuff now just seems quite futile when I've been revising solidly for the past two months. Stupid shit like sub-fusc, what type of water bottle, waking up for the exam is stressing me out way more than actually sitting down and doing the stupid thing Laughing out loud

Props on the mental hours timmbo, the library has been so fucking horrible, I'm pretty good at working at home but lost it a bit recently. Might see you in cabvol if I can make it that far Hi-Def.
