Can you advise this student nurse?
“I started uni in September confident that the money I’d saved up over summer plus my bursary would easily get me through the term.
“But I just checked my bank account and was shocked to see I’m down to £47.61! It’s my first-time living independently and I just didn’t realise how quickly I’d get through that money. I know I need to learn to budget but right now I need a short-term solution or I won’t be eating until Christmas.
“Uni told us all in the first week to avoid part-time work but what other options do I have?!
“How have other students coped? Is there any funding available? Or should I ignore uni and find a part-time job?”
