    teaching fee's are normally £3225 or some digit of that sort.

    then you have accomidation costs idf you live in halls which can be anything from high £2000 to £4000 - in sept mine is £3685

    then need money to live off etc.... so its expensive. But some people get a grant from the goverment of upto £1400 depending on your familys income. which can help. i dont though

    but surely getting a part time job working like 3 days a week would cover it right?

    On top of that add accommodation costs if you will be moving out of home or having to pay rent (Have the figure of £4000 in mind, it shouldnt go too much over that for decent accommodation no matter where you study, but could be alot less)

    Also, allocate yourself around £50-£60 per week to live on whilst at university (could be alot more depending on your spending habits), so over 39 weeks say £2500 min per year, not including non term time.

    Aim for £7000 a year inc accommodation and you should be fine.

    highly unlikely mate. food a week will be like £30..then nights out. then clothes and then other costs like travel costs etc. but you get a loan which you dont start paying off till you leave uni and are in a job where you earn over £15,000 and even then they only take a small amount out of your wage so you hardly 'feel it' if that makes sence.

    fees = 3.2k
    accomo = 3k
    food = 1.5k


    = £7700

    excluding anything extra you want to buy, ie. running a car etc...

    Tuition Fees: £3224.
    Then accommodation can vary from £0 (living at home) to £4000+
    Then there is food, travel, nights out, books, clothes, extra bills (e.g. phone), drink, toiletries, gifts and anything else you can think of.

    Well good luck, i loved my time at york. First year i paid for the gym every month and found it harder to budget. I paid for my gym membership all in one go for last year. Then i didnt notice it going every month. But i was a member of the David Lloyd which was a really nice gym (managed to barter them down to 42pm as i was paying for the year but its usually 52pm). The uni gym i think is around 40 for 3 months.

    i doubt it!! generally you take out a student lon to cover tutition fees which you can find out about on most university or government websites. this then means you just pay cost f living!!

    Also look on goverment websites at maintenance grants these are to support those moving way from home and in my brothers case covered his accomodation costs!! this then meant that yes his part time job covered food, drink etc thorughout uni!!

    i dont really have a clue! im only 17 myself im just going off my brothers experience!! hmm however like someone up a bit said you dotn reapy your student loan (tuition fees) until your earning over 15k a year. so with that in mind as long as you can afford month to month outgoings through undergraduate degree. you should be able to carry on the same way through postgrad..working enough to cover outgoings!! then once youve finsihed ostgrad getting a job which then allows you to pay back your tuition fees!
