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 together with an additional increase to account for annual inflation thereafter.

The estimated living costs may be broken down as follows (£):
