Studying in the UK is expensive, with tuition fees varying depending on the university and course chosen. Tuition at a British university ranges from £4,000 to over £30,000 per year.

In addition, according to the British Council, a student living in London needs at least £750 per month to live. This amount covers the cost of accommodation, food, bills and transport. It’s also worth noting that students are exempt from paying council tax as a student, as long as you are studying for a minimum of 21hrs per week for a course of at least one year.

If you want to start your studies through a foundation course before starting your degree, classes can cost between £7,000 to £12,000 for a foundation degree and £4,000 to £12,000 per year for an international foundation course.

To study as an undergraduate, course costs vary depending on the course itself:

  • Foundation £4,000 to £12,000 p.a.
  • Art £7,000 to £9,000 p.a.
  • Science £7,500 to £12,000 p.a.
  • Medicine £10,000 to £21,000 p.a.

For post graduate courses (after your initial degree, typically for over 21yr olds) typical course costs include:

  • Art and Classical Studies from £7,000 to £9,000 p.a.
  • Science £7,500 to £12,000 p.a.
  • Medicine £10,000 to £21,000 p.a.
  • MBA £4,000 to £30,000+ p.a.

These fees cover lectures, tutorials, and full university access to libraries, labs, IT equipment, workshops, gyms, Student Union bars, etc.
