20 year-old student Warren Lee from Southampton has spent the past three months of his studies in complete poverty.
Warren expected to recieve his student loan on September 19th (the standard date) but after frequent excuses and being hung up on and ignored by UWE he still doesn't have a penny to his name. After contacting student services about being under-fianaced for his tuition on the 19th of October they ensured they would sort out the situation. It's almost a month later and nothing has been done, Warren is struggling to pay for food and for a bus to his lessons. With rising tuition fees and a lack of opportunities within work placement, this treatment of students is unacceptable.
