Studying in London is a fantastic experience, but it is important to have budgeted for your living costs before starting your course.

Living as a student in London costs about £11,385 per academic year in addition to the cost of your student fees.

Your budget includes everything from travel to the UK and getting around while you are here, to rent, entertainment, food, study resources, clothing and more.

The UK Council for International Student Affairs provides specialist information and advice for international students on how to manage their money when studying in the UK.

If you have student immigration permission to take employment, you can work up to 20 hours per week during term-time, providing you are not self-employed. However, you are strongly advised to make sure you can pay your tuition fees and living costs without relying on income from a part-time job in the UK, as there is no guarantee you will find work.

For up-to-date information on working in the UK, please visit the UK Council for International Student Affairs.
