    Hi everyone,

    I am applying for a Masters and I don't quite understand maintenance fees. It says on the course fees that I should expect to pay a minimum of £12,595 maintenance - yet the colleges I want to apply for like Darwin, Selwyn etc. cost about £4-5k in one years rent. Why are they saying it'll cost so much?

    Thank you!

    Without knowing where you saw £12,595 from.....
    Isn’t the maintenance including rent plus cost of living while ‘rent’ on Darwin & Selwyn are just rent?

    Btw this forum is mainly for undergraduate application, so it may be better to post in Postgraduate forum or send email to the university/colleges.
