Travis Said:

UK Students only. Students with info on housing benefit and income support?

We Answered:

I'm also a lone parent who is on benefit. It's complicated but do-able.

First of all, grants and loans. You are entitled to the full loan plus the special grant rather than the normal maintainance grant. This is very important. You will also get the Parent's Learning Grant.

If you on IS now, and do not get any tax credits you might still get a little income support - the Special Grant and Parents Learning Grant are not taken into account when applying for IS. If you still get it you will be entitled to have all your rent paid.

If you get any tax credits you may find that with the student loan, you get a bit too much for IS. If this is the case housing benefit will re-assess your claim again, only taking the loan into account and pay most of your rent.

You should also be entitled to a bursury which can be up to £1,000 a year. This is also not taken into account.

Make sure you get the exemption certificate from uni if you do not get IS.

Hope this helps

Brent Said:

An internet connection for student houses? UK only?

We Answered:

I'm a student living in a house in the UK. From my experience, a lot of student housing uses Virgin Media (cable) internet. I think packages go up to about 20meg. I guess price shouldn't really affect the students, especially if they're splitting the cost (say) four or five ways.

Virgin have been really good when we've wanted to talk to them, and the connection is great. I don't know how widespread the cable network is, but I can't see why most student areas (i.e. cities) wouldn't have access - just for information, I'm in Birmingham.

Martin Said:

can i buy a house in UK while on student visa?

We Answered:

If you have the money and can prove the source of that money to satisfy the UK's money laundering legislation, then yes of course you can.

However, it is a myth that owning property in the UK can somehow gain you an advantage that would allow you to stay here.

Bradley Said:

Student housing insurance in the UK?

We Answered:

I think it goes by if you have locks on the door!? Or something like that. Im not sure if my student house is insured, but my contents are insured by my dad's policy for his home. Although he lives in London, his insurance covers me..so find out about whoever you mainly reside with, if you are covered on theirs. If not, use a price comparison site and find out what they offer...
