You’ll face various costs of living as a student. These will be higher if you live away from home, and higher still if you live away from home and study in London.
Some of the things you may need to consider when getting an idea of the costs you are likely to incur include:-
• Accommodation – this is likely to be your single biggest living expense, and you may be expected to contribute to household expenses even if you live at home.
• Household bills – gas, electricity, water rates, phone, TV licence, contents insurance (some of these are covered by rent in halls of residence)
• Leisure and sport
• Study costs such as books, materials and field trips for your course
