    Hey guys,

    So i'll be leaving for the UK for the first time next year and my budget so far has totaled £50,000. Was wondering if other international students have had to spend more than this or if it's actually just normal.

    Thanks

    lol i'm not sure how other peoples budget turn out but really, consider the fees alone; unis like Glasgow have the international tuition fees up to 15,000 and over (i think excluding books and the like) and for unis like Manchester it goes up to £35,000.
    Before accommodation and living costs and stuff.

    Thought it was normal for my total budget to reach 50k :confused:. Just not sure if i kind of over-did it or it's fine :bigsmile:

    when I did my degree there were no fees and I lived at home...
    Not only that but I was getting a grant to help with expenses

    That is why I was shocked!!
    Three years at £50,000 is a small fortune.
