Understand the Cost of studying Abroad in the UK
Make sure your finances in line so you can enjoy your overseas tertiary experience. Studying in the UK offers excellent value for money and although the UK is sometimes thought of as expensive, the reality is quite different with programs to provide university students with access to numerous discounts and employment opportunities for international students.
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 as your time abroad will be minimised.
Course fees may cover a range of things you might not expect, including library access, sports, student union membership, and other practical facilities designed to help and support students.
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 on your eligibility to work in the UK 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 also provide excellent discounts.
