UK Fee and Cost of Study and Living

Weekly Budget for 2017 - 2018

The cost of a dgree for an international student in the UK is lower as compared to the dgree from USA and other countries. A course that costs $25,000 in USA can cost in the range of £6,000 to £7,000 a year in UK - considerably less!

Degree Duration

More over; you can also save a lot of money in UK study because your degree will generally take less time to complete in the UK than in other countries. Although four-year programs are increasing in popularity, most degree programs in the UK require a three-year course and a masters program is typically between one and two years. When you consider the shorter timeframe, the cost will be much lower if you only have to plan for three years instead of four or even five as in many other countries.

UK study cost is affordable?

Although international students can manage their affairs so that their UK education is affordable, UK policymakers are taking note of an alarming trend in the cost of education for non-EU students. With exchange rates climbing, life in the UK can be quite expensive generally.

Cost for non-EU countries

In addition, unlike in many other EU countries, non-EU students are charged higher rates in the UK than students from EU countries. One recent study from the Higher Education Policy Institute warned that the UK must act to contain and reduce tuition and costs to stay competitive in the hunt for international students.

Cost Factors

  • You must consider the cost of accommodation and daily living expenses as well as the cost of your tuition fees.
  • Planning your budget will depend on the type of accommodation selected and your own spending habits.
