I will be coming there with my partner and living in college accommodation which will come to around 800 pounds a month at Wolfson. We are assuming that the monthly living expenses for a couple would come to about 1500 pounds including rent. Is this a reasonable budget? We like to meet friends for coffee/drinks, and go out drinking/dining a couple of times a month, and catch the occasional show/movie too - is this doable within this budget or should we be preparing for a much more austere lifestyle?
Also, my partner has just quit his job and is trying to make an entry into professional photography, possibly focusing on portrait photography and events. What are the opportunities for this in Oxford?
