I am planning to take up a postgraduate study in the Uni and this time I will be living and studying in Aberdeen, with my wife. I guess she'll enjoy her break from the usual day to day life in our home country while I study for a year there.
Before we get there, I want to find out more about living cost in Aberdeen. I am budgeting around 1000gbp per month to cover basically everything (accomodation, food, utilities, transportation etc.)
My basis will be renting a studio unit or 1 bedroom flat for both of us (not sharing with anyone for privacy) with walking distance to uni (20-30 minutes or so is fine), both of us will do loads of cooking and occasional dine out. We also plan to travel within Aberdeen and Scotland for 'detailed' sight seeing. (we used to cycle around streets and take photographs along the way).
Generally, both of us don't club. So night pubs will be a rare occasion.
So, can 1000gbp well cover for our lives in Aberdeen for 12 months? Hope that it is not too miserable with that sum...
And actually passed?
