In addition to paying your tuition fees, you will need to budget for living costs. We estimate that you will need at least £180 per week; however, this will vary depending on your course and lifestyle. If you are an international student, you should make an extra allowance of up to £600 for other expenses on arrival.
We recommend taking the following aspects into account when planning your budget:
- Utility bills
- TV licence
- Course costs
