Cost Of Education UK
For international students universities often set their own fees which vary according to course and the institution offering them. Average costs vary in the range of 10,000 to 12,000 pounds for undergraduate degrees and 10,000 to 18,000 for post graduate degrees. Degrees in humanities and social sciences tend to cost far lower than courses focusing on laboratory work or clinical degrees.
UK visa requirements stipulate that a student must have 1,015 pounds in their bank accounts for every month they are to study there. If you are to live in a larger metropolis like London your cost of living will also increase considerably. However, places like Cardiff, Aberdeen in Scotland, and Durham are far more affordable in terms of cost of living.
Rent and food are two of the biggest expenses when living in the UK. Rent prices in larger cities are some of the highest in the world. The National Student Accomodation Survey of 2017 found that students spent an average of 125 pounds on rent every week. The regional variations, however, are quite drastic. Students in Northern Ireland spend about 91 pounds every week, half of what someone in London, may be spending. Food will cost you about 30 pounds every week, and a meal in a diner or a restaurant may run up to 12 pounds. Phone bills, utilities, and other ancillary costs every month will also pad up your education and living bill to a great extent.
