Before leaving home you must be sure that you will have enough money to pay for any unpaid tuition fees and your monthly living expenses. We recommend that you should allow approximately £6500 to £8,500 per year, depending on your accommodation choice and lifestyle. Remember, if you’re a Tier 4 visa student, you will be required to show that you have access to a certain level of funds to support your time in the UK when you submit your visa application.

The International Student Calculator has been launched to help international students plan and manage their money for studies in the UK and you may find it useful to learn about building a lifestyle budget and understanding how you will spend your time and money in the UK. You may be able to work during your studies to help towards your living costs. Some students may be entitled to a scholarship for all or part of their tuition fees or living costs.
