Advice on Accommodation & Living Costs in The United Kingdom.
The cost of accommodation in the UK varies depending on where you choose to study your undergraduate course. There are two main types of accommodation while studying:
• University accommodation –
such as halls of residence
• Private accommodation –
house and flat rentals
Accommodation costs in the UK are more expensive in major cities such as London, Manchester and Birmingham. As a guide, a room in a shared house will cost between £200-£700 a month.
Living costs in the UK are comparable with most European countries, but the amount you need will depend on the city you choose to study in.
For example, living costs in London, in particular renting an apartment, will often be double of those in cities like Manchester or Sheffield.
Many places offer students discounts, so look for restaurants, clothes shops and bars offering students cheaper rates.
Costs are currently changing around the fallout of EU referendum and could rise to be higher than other parts of Europe as the UK leaves the EU.
