How much will university cost?

What will I need to pay for?

Your main costs will be your tuition fees, your accommodation, materials for your course (books, stationery etc) and your cost of living, including food, tra nsport and, of course, social life.

In the academic year 2007/2008 the cost of tuition fees for undergraduate students is £1,735 per year, with the exception of medical students, where the cost of tuition fees is £2,760 per year. Scottish students should apply to the Student Awards Agency for Scotland to cover this cost. Students from England and Wales should apply to their Local Education Authority; students from Northern Ireland should contact their Education and Library Board for advice about financial support for their studies. Students from elsewhere in the EU should also contact the Student Award Agency who often cover the cost of these fees.

A rough estimate of the costs (excluding fees) that you can expect in your first year might look like this:

  • accommodation costs (hall of residence with meals) £4,000
  • books and stationery £170
  • clothes £140
  • laundry/cleaning £50
  • telephone £80
  • postage £50
  • travel £100
  • sport/leisure £340
  • (other costs) £350

    TOTAL £5,280

Remember, this is a conservative estimate: most students will spend more than £140 on clothes in a year and your actual costs will depend on your lifestyle.

There could also be some extra costs for your degree. For example if you are doing a science degree which involves a field course as part of the programme, you will need to pay the cost of the field course yourself.
