Living costs for UK and EU Postgraduate Students
We estimate that you will require the following amounts for each twelve months of study to cover accommodation, maintenance and personal spending (all figures are in pounds sterling). The figures below are based on responses to a survey of our own students undertaken in spring 2010 together with an additional 5% increase to account for inflation.
The estimated living costs may be broken down as follows (£):
Annual postgraduate living costs Lower prediction Middle prediction Upper prediction Books/iTunes £96 £108 £132 Laundry / Optical care / Dental care £228 £276 £324 Internet £60 £132 £204 heating £144 £228 £312 Telephone £132 £288 £432 UK Travel £324 £456 £600 Clothes / Shoes £132 £384 £636 Leisure / Eating out / Socialising £456 £624 £780 Food (excl. eating out & alcohol) £972 £1,332 £1,692 Accommodation £3,468 £4,068 £4,584 TOTAL £6,012 £7,896 £9,696

The above are estimated ranges of living costs for 12 months. These are only guidelines as some students will be able to live more cheaply whilst others will spend more.
