Studying in the UK offers excellent value for money and although the UK is sometimes thought of as expensive, the reality is quite different
The annual tuition fee in a good British University varies from £10000 to £20000.
Courses in the UK are often shorter and more intensive than in other countries. This will help you to save on tuition fees and living costs.
Course fees may cover a range of things you might not expect, including library access, sports, student union membership, and other practical facilities.
Part-time employment opportunities
If you enter the UK on a Tier 4 student visa, you may be able to work a certain number of hours per week during term time and in the holiday/vacation period. If you go to the UK on a student visitor visa, child visitor visa, or prospective student visa, you will not be eligible to work in the UK. For the latest detailed information visit: the UKBA website.
Access to discounts
As a full-time student in higher education you will have access to a National Union of Students (NUSA), card which gives a range of discounts on study essentials, travel, entertainment, clothes, food and drink, shopping and more. Student rail (train) and coach (long distance bus) cards can provide excellent discounts.
For the international students most of the universities at UK provide on campus accommodation and also a variety of accommodation options are available to you. The college or university usually has halls of residence. If you are not offered on campus accommodation you can look for other accommodation options that will suit your monthly budget.
Students choose to move into flats/houses in the second or third years of their campus life. If you do move into a flat or house, you will have to sign a tenancy agreement, which is a legal document outlining the terms of the tenancy. It will be better to seek the assistance of the international student advisor regarding the procedures.
