Living Expenses

It is important that you ensure you have adequate funds to cover your period of study before applying for admission. 

You should ensure that you have adequate funds to cover other expenses during your period of study. 

We estimate that to cover the cost of other living expenses a single self-supporting student (with no children) should budget for between at least £1000 - £1200 each month for the full academic year 2021-2022 in addition to tuition fees. 

The following is a very generalised breakdown of how your living expenses might be allocated on a monthly basis. This figure is for guidance only; you may find that - depending on your lifestyle - you require more or less.
