    £10000 per year ish.

    Your loan will cover your rent, if you're lucky, and that's it. You need another few grand for food and going out and such. It's a nightmare trust me.



    Course: £3525 (I cant remember exactly what it is this yr but its something like that.)
    Accommodation: Mines £3000 a year, but that's quite expensive..
    Food: about £1000 a year, depending on where you go, how much you visit home, what brands you buy etc.
    Going out: it depends.. a good night out can cost anything up to £80 (including taxi, drinks, entry fees, food on the way home etc.)

    You also need clothes, course texts, transport (I can't comment on this as I live on campus).

    Probs 10-11k a year. Course fees are 3225. Accommodation which includes food is just over 5000. Then the rest is things llike going out, new clothes (things like cocktail dresses and suits-things I didn't really have before I came to uni, however they are only really needed because of the society I am in). Social stuff like clubbing costs maybe £20-30 a night and then tickets to balls etc..... It all adds up

    Roughly £10,000, maybe a little more but certainly under £11,000.

    It'll greatly depend on where you live.

    As a student in Preston, my loan would've allowed me to live what was, to me, a luxurious lifestyle.

    As it was, I chose not to use it and could live even more luxuriously on part and full time wages.

    I didn't spend much myself - I was a cheapskate buying food for a maximum of £10 a week, but the loan after accommodation would've allowed me something more like £70 if I'd so desired. I didn't have any travel costs, and I made any social events free or extremely low-cost, again never spending more than £10.

    Had I wanted to study in London, or anywhere more expensive, in fact, I'd have imagined I'd need an entirely different lifestyle using loans and wages.

    You're all paying £3000 each year for your courses?

    yeah "tuition fees" are 3225 - you pay this to your uni so you can study there

    then the first year accommodation is usually 3000-3500 or so.. this will probably rise to at least 3500-4000 in the next years when you're not in halls any more

    then the rest for food and going out etc is 3000+ a year depending on who you are really..

    Fees are £3,000whatever.
    Accommodation is about £5,500.
    I spent £4,500 in the first term. £2,500 already this term. Probably spend £3,000 from now until the end of term.

    So, yeaaah..quite a lot. Even more if you include flights and visa for year abroad which starts in sept which will have to be bought this academic year.
