As well as your tuition fees and accommodation, you will also need to take into account other costs such as food, travel, clothes and leisure. The table below provides a rough guide of costs for an undergraduate student for a 38-week period. Please note these figures are intended as a guide only. The table does not include your tuition fees, accommodation costs, travel home or visa charges.

Additional costs

In addition to the cost of text books, you will also need to cover the cost of photocopying, printing and binding, and should budget at least £100 per annum for this. Some courses involve visits away from the University campus, and you may be required to pay some or all of the costs of travel, accommodation and subsistence for such trips.

If undertaking a placement, you will be responsible for your own travel, accommodation and living costs, and you should also consider the financial implications should you undertake an unpaid or overseas placement.

If you choose to go on Academic Exchange in your final year you will have to pay for your own travel expenses and accommodation.
