    Hey!

    So I'd like to apply for the Creative Writing MFA at UEA beginning 2017. I know that given the PostGrad Loan system and any scholarships I might be able to get, I'll be able to afford the tuition. Only thing is, I'm not sure whether loans and scholarships will cover the living expenses of being there full-time for two years.

    Could anyone who's moved there by themselves or done what I'd like to do maybe give me an estimate of how much I'm looking at for accommodation, a weekly shop, bills, etc. etc?

    Thank you in advance if you do!

    Try the UEA forum for more up to date details, but when I was there a couple of years ago rent was around £4000 a year for a room in a shared house. A weekly shop really depends on personal preference and where you go, but I'd imagine with shops like Aldi and the Co-Op around its possible to do a weekly shop for £15 a week if money is tight. The ballpark figure for bills is usually £40pcm.
