    How much are people planning on budgeting for living costs?

    I know Trinity suggest somewhere in the region of £7,850 to £9,200 and King's say £8,360, but it would be nice to know how much people anticipate they'll spend over three terms.

    They both sound like reasonable numbers. I probably spend closer to £4000 than £3000 a term but I waste money like nobody's business.

    Is this including accommodation?

    Cambridge say £7,200 is enough, but I think that's just an excuse so that college bursaries intended to bring people from all backgrounds up to similar levels don't have to give you as much.

    I know I'm really late posting but I have an offer for PBS at Sidney Sussex. I don't know anyone else with an offer for my course or from my college yet so if you're out there please say hello!

    Yeah I'm anticipate spending about £8,000 per year, but I'm planning on getting £10,000 so I have a good buffer in case something goes wrong and I'll be able to get another £4,000 on top of that if I need it.

    My biggest concern is accommodation though. I really, really don't want to get stuck in a shoebox for a year.

    I don't know. Technically you can survive on that, but I think you won't get any luxuries - just the very basic stuff (and fairly low quality accommodation).

    Depends on the college (how much accommodation is subsidised) and whether or not you drink.
