International Student Calculator

According to research by The UK Council For International Student Affairs (UKCISA), student finance is the number one concern for international students. Almost a quarter (23%) of them said they didn’t have enough money to live on. Of those who had experienced hardship, 72% said they underestimated the cost of living. Only 25% of students took out possessions insurance, which is concerning as students are often targeted. Also, many have unrealistic expectations of how much time they can spend working.

The International Student Calculator enables students to:

  • Build a lifestyle budget and see how it balances by week, month or over a year.
  • Understand how they will spend their time as well as their money in the UK
  • Get information on areas like insurance and banking as well as guidance on the costs of living
  • Learn from case studies and top tips from other students
  • Save their budget so they can use it before arriving or during their studies!

International Student CalculatorThe International Student Calculator is there to help you plan and manage your money for study in the UK.

The UNIAID Student Life Wiki is an interactive uni guide which allows students to view and edit articles about their town, University, living costs, and much more.

Tuition and fees are set annually, in advance of the start of the academic year, by the Board of Trustees. The tuition fee will not change for the duration of the academic year.
