    I'm currently an International student seeking to study at Nottingham Trent University for the 2017/18 session, can someone please estimate expenses on accommodation and living expenses. Thank you

    One of the cheapest cities in the UK to be a student.

    If you're self catered, £20 a week is probably a good estimate for food, although you could live on less if you tried.

    Accommodation varies, but I'd imagine £120 per week or less for good quality student accommodation like Nottingham Two. Sharing a house with other students is considerably less, often below £90.

    Transport is quite cheap, £1 for certain busses.

    I second the £20 figure. I added up the cost of a potential groceries that I am going to get when I move to uni this Sept and it came just under £20.
    Isn't Nottingham Two quite a distance from NTU though? I'm going to be staying there but only because I'm going to be based at UoN Jubilee Campus.

    I was also based at Jubilee and lived in Nottingham Two, it's a great location! But yes, there are a few people from Trent that live there because the bus ride is just over 5 minutes away from their campus.

    Ah that's a short bus ride indeed!

    I've did an estimate around a month ago and food shopping came in at £20-25 depending on what I got. Because my accommodation is so close to my course I'll be avoiding eating out.
