Your University Questions, Answered.

What's the cost of living like at UEA? Paul, Manchester


Our Answer:

Good question! Something we get asked a lot.

Cost of living is something to consider when applying for university – how far are your pennies going to stretch? There are so many factors that will feed in to this including the cost of accommodation, daily travel, the cost of travelling back home, food, socialising and buying books for your course.

The Student Living Index is a good place to have a look at the cost of living in different student cities. 

Wherever you decide to study, it’s a good idea to start thinking about budgeting to make sure you get the most out of your money. Student blogger Maisie has shared her tips which include making use of student discounts, buying course books and, always bear in mind, "although you have a budget doesn’t mean you have to always spend it all! All savings make a big difference, and you can carry over what you don’t spend to the next week and use it for nights out, or special treats."
