So i have worked out that after accomodation fees, food and memberships, i will have £3000 to spend throughout the year on anything else.

My question is whether this will be enough for other things like going out, miscellanous etc?

Are you planning on getting a job? I would imagine that would be fine presuming you budget appropriately though.

Depends how much you drink. You can pitch in with your flat mates or whoever you're going out with for pre-drinks. That'll save you some money. What I tend to do when I'm out is take out small amounts of money at a time so I don't spend too much. I'm also a fresher so I'm not an expert

I'd say you can get away with £20-30, even less if you don't drink that much, and you're smarter than me :laugh:

you should be okay... you have around £60 a week but you can get away with spending less during the 4-5 months a year you're at home so if you budget £60 a week then you should have a reasonable amount spare for emergencies

60 a week will give you 20-25 for food and 30-35 for other things (i.e. going out and drinking) - this is okay providing you can keep it cheap or don't want to go out 5 nights a week... you can do a night out on £10-15 if you pre drink something cheap, don't pay a lot for entry and don't get a taxi

Only £100 per week after food? Mate, you're gonna have to ask for shots of homeopathic Glenn's vodka with that little money /s

On that budget after food you could spend to your heart's content and still save about £50 per week.

Hello ,

If you budget well and plan ahead for each week you will be absolutely fine.
That will be more than enough to help you on leisure and stuff like that.

Best of luck

£3000 after food and accommodation? What kind of lifestyle are you planning on leading where that isn't going to be enough??
