Cost of living
It’s always difficult to know exactly how much it will cost to live comfortably in a new place. Everyone knows that one person’s weekly budget might only last another person a couple of days.
In this guide we aim to give you a good idea of costs, but much depends on your own personal choices.
So, allow some margin to cover this, as well as having something kept aside for the unexpected things which always catch us out when we least expect it!
We would recommend allowing:
- £12,100 for a single student per year
- A minimum of £18,000 for a married couple
- For each child add £3,000 per year.
The following is only a very rough breakdown of costs per month for a single student in average priced self-catering accommodation.
In addition to the figure of £11,400 below, you should include the following amounts annually: books: £400, UK travel: £300.
