It is best not to carry large amounts of cash with you and you may want to set up a bank account or a float account if a regular bank account isn’t possible.

Explanation:
FLOAT ACCOUNT
A float account is opened for each longterm
student. This is used for expenses
such as textbooks. A ‘float’ account must
be funded if you wish to take advantage
of services without paying from personal
funds. Our experience shows that you will
incur around £1,000 of expenses in a year.
However, this varies from student to student
and your parent or guardian is asked to
decide on an appropriate amount to provide.
Please note you will not be able to enjoy
services unless you either:
• maintain a float account
• attend the bursary to pay in advance for
each service from your own funds
A statement detailing the balance on your
float account, together with the expenses
deducted during each term, will be provided
following the end of each term. This will be
sent to the same address as your fee invoices.
If your float account balance falls below
£200, an email will be sent to your parents to
ask if you wish to top up the account. Please
ensure that you provide an appropriate email
address during induction.
We regret that we are unable to extend
credit to students who do not have a funded
float account in place.
Mandatory expenses, e.g. exam fees, will be
invoiced separately. Costs vary according
to subject but on average these are around
£500 per year.
Damages in your room must be paid for
immediately. Damages in communal areas
are divided between all the students in your
house.

agree  Roman Kozierkiewicz: Jako wieczny student prosiłbym o założenie "float account" na drobne wydatki, poczynajć od 1 mln US dol, wzwyż./Liczę na Twoją wygraną na loterii - może być skromne 10% - jeśli więcej - to będę jeszcze bardziej zobowiązany.
