    Hi!

    I will be moving back to England at the end of the Summer with my girlfriend. I will do an open uni course and she will be starting a masters degree as an international student (I am a British national).

    I am wondering if anyone could possibly provide me with some info regarding cost of living in the following locations based on a student couple.

    1. Edinburgh
    2. Durham
    3. York
    4. Nottingham
    5. Cambridge
    6. Oxford
    7. Brighton


    Taking into account public transport costs, cost of food, amenities, what order should those cities be in from cheapest to most expensive?

    Thanks in advance!!

    It goes something like
    York
    Nottingham
    Durham
    Cambridge
    Brighton
    Oxford

    Thats not an exact order, but I know that Oxford & Brighton are both fairly expensive cities.

    I may be wrong, but did York not get highlighted recently as quite an expensive place to live for a student?

    OP, generally the north of the country will be cheaper than the south.

    This. Basically the further north you go the cheaper it is (admittedly I haven't the foggiest about scotland though)

    If it did I'm not aware of that, but thats why I said generally.

    I believe Edinburgh is pretty expensive, but I forgot to include it so will add it in now.

    Nottingham is quite cheap.

    Your housing will be a little pricey because its in the middle of the city but travel is very cheap.

    Things are generally more expensive in the south of England, from what I know.

    I would imagine Cambridge, Oxford, and Brighton would be the most expensive of the places on the list.
