Almost every university city/town from B'ham upwards and south of Edinburgh shouldn't have you struggling to find affordable living arrangements.

i remember reading sometime ago Aberystwyth was very cheap and Swansea for housing is quite cheap too. Also northern areas are fairly cheap.

Belfast is ridiculously cheap, groceries would be about £15 a week. when you're out of student halls, rent is around £250 a month (would 100% recommend halls for first year tho). translink does all transport here and they do student cards that give 50% off fares from July to Halloween, then 1/3 off the rest of the year. at that, a full bus ticket is only £1.20 max. A train to two hours away is £12.50 full price. I don't know if you drink, but if you do, average double and mixer is £5, unless it's a student night then it is £2.70

University of South Wales! It depends what you're studying, but Treforest/Pontypridd in particular are pretty cheap. I saw someone advertising a room in a student house this afternoon for something like £55/week + £40/month bills!

Wales, generally, is a pretty good shout.

Fees are the same since they are determined by where you live (England). Another suggestion is Lancaster, in the North of England. Its a nice uni and a cheap city for rental costs. They're really good for Physics but want around AAB

You wouldnt need anything like a passport for Wales or Scotland as they are part of the UK so you just drive on the motorway or go on the train. Belfast is also in the UK so you shouldnt need a passport although as you are going by ferry or air I suspect you may need some form of ID. Maybe someone on here with more knowledge of Northern Ireland may be able to help

Any uni not in a big city and in the north will be fairly affordable (Lancaster is definitely the cheapest out of the unis that my friends go to!). London, Edinburgh, Surrey and Birmingham are all expensive.
Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!

If you're eligible for the whole maintenance loan, Cambridge. Living costs are pretty high, but probably not £3,500/year (the amount you'll get as a bursary) higher than elsewhere.
