It is very difficult to estimate an individual's living costs as we all have different lifestyle requirements and spending habits.

However, as a general guideline we provide you with an estimate of average costs for accommodation and living expenses for a single student over a 40 week period.

Please note that the following estimate does not include the tuition fees and the costs of trips from and to your home country. Also bear in mind that your tuition fees are subject to increase year on year and you should make provision for any rise in costs.

Expenditure

 Cost

Rent at average of £90/week (incl. utility bills - heating, electricity, water)

£3,600

Food at average of £30/week

£1,200

Books and other material

£400

Leisure/social (entertainment, going out) at average of £40/week

£1,600

Other general expenses (phone, washing, clothing)

£1,200

Total average estimated costs

£8,000

If accompanied by a spouse or older child you should allow at least an extra £4,000 per year and a minimum of £1,500 for each accompanying young child.
