    ---- THREAD CLOSED 09/16/2013 ----
    Basically, I go to university in London, I have always had a hard time with education, but I have REALLLY put my all into getting a decent grade. Last year I finally achieved something decent, getting 90% in some of my grades, baring in mind all my secondary school teachers condemned me to being a total failure.

    So I was REALLY looking forward to doing my dissertation (in fact I had already started it!), then I got the letter through saying...

    ... THEN to rub salt into the wound they sent a letter saying...
    My family have NO money, my father does but all he cares about is his pension and won't even give me money to buy clothes lol.. This is is made harder due to the fact I have been suffering with depression for 7 years, and also have aspergers, meaning I find concentrating on things like education (or long term commitments) and dealing with stuff like this VERY hard. For me, its fight or flight. The reason I post here is because I love BHW, and you guys are always supportive and its a great forum. :)

    So overall, I need £14,000 try and pass university, and I plan to get a first class degree. No idea how I am going to do it. I need £1,800 by next week, I am going to sit down with a pen and paper and do ANYTHING I can to do this.

    How much investment do I have? £500 I won in a business plan competition. I will need to average £1,600 a month for the next 9 months.
    Current income online? hosting service: £70pm, adsense sites: £50pm (used to be WAY more, but uni took first priority)

    If I succeed, I will have everything I need to follow my career in life, If I fail, then I'll have £30k of debt and nothing to show for it.

    If you have ANY ideas, it would be helpful.

    *gets pen and peper*
    ..... and my time starts..... NOW!

    I don't know if the UK gov or banks offer something like a student loan where you only pay back the interest until you graduate. maybe thats a possibility

    Ask your dad for money and explain all the things. It is worth trying who knows if he agree.

    Ok ok very funny guys...

    I have a part time job in the uni, which does help a bit.

    One plan I do have is to restart my offline SEO and web design services again.

    Well first you need to break down exactly what you need.

    The first thing I would do is go and talk with you university to see if you can extend your fee payments into a smaller monthly fee. Then find out of you can stay with friends or family in the local area and offer to pay them but that will reduce your outgoings significantly, especially in London as house prices there are ridiculous.

    So with that it could half your outgoings from £14k to maybe £7-9k.

    Then you have to split it over maybe 9-12 months so in theory you need to make between £700-1000ish a month which makes the whole task seem a lot more manageable.

    That would only be about 70-100 handjobs a month and that isn't including tips!

    Joking aside, just break down what you need to achieve, then put it into a logical step by step procedure and you can do it.

    Good luck!

    But to be honest, why do you even bother getting that fucking paper if you already can build successful business?

    Everyone knows that students do not have much money, so what you want to do is work on this fact. Here is what you do. Students need money, so you supply them with money via power of payday loans. Get yourself a domain to redirect to your payday loan affiliate link. Get a flyer developed and then start handing them out to the needy students. You make money and they end up owing their souls to Wonga.

    I admire all the BS people post nowadays on BHW. Too many troll wannabes?

    OP PM me your Skype, I might actually have something for you since you are based in the UK.

    Ignore all the idiots making stupid comments... Have you tried looking for a job in the evening? Maybe a bar tender job? There is a ton of pubs and clubs in London, some must be needing more staff now university has started again?

    Thanks some great advice here.

    grant payback: £3,000
    university tuition: £3,500 (thank science im not having to pay £9k!)
    Total fixed costs: £6,500

    Average rent per room in my area of London: £600 pcm (£5,400 over 9 months)
    Travel costs: £120 pcm (£1,080 over 9 months)
    Food (I cook for myself everyday): £250pcm ( £2,300 over 9 months)
    phone, internet, IM stuff: about £200 pcm (£1,800 over 9 months)
    leisure time, going out with friends, anything at all fun: £0
    TOTAL living costs: £10,580

    On that amount the government would be giving me a free house, tons of benefits and so on, but because i'm not a scrounger, no.


    So after breaking it down, I need £16k.. ffs lol.

    Ok ok.. Im going to try cut those costs.
    I can get a small crappy room in a (like I had before, and it was awful f'ing awful. - savings: £100 pcm
    ONLY buy aldi own brand food.. should save £50 pcm
    sell phone, get £5 phone, can't cancel contract - £200
    cancel some IM stuff... save.. £20-50 pcm
    can't really cut down on travel....

    Total savings over 9 months: £1,800



    I may go back to my old fav way of making money, I've still got my stamp collection, which I used to buy and sell on ebay, in stamp auctions when I was 15, I very much enjoyed it, it made me a good £500-700 a month, and now I am older I can rack it up more.


    Thanks guys for the help so far.

    Yeah I have a part time job in the uni, I get about 10 hours a week. I may look for other jobs, but as I said before, too much responsibility makes my brain go into meltdown. But if there is a time and place to TRY like never before, now is it.

    Thanks, trolls troll, I don't care :)
