Study abroad UK – fulfill your dreams within the budget

| 23/09/2013 | 4 Comments

With colleges and universities in European countries providing low-cost study programs, it’s noticeable an increase in the number of working-class parents sending their children abroad. This phenomenon is very impressive as sending children abroad used to be an exclusive privilege of students from rich families. According to Blue Book released by the Chinese Academy last year, 35 percent of students studying abroad in recent few years were from working-class families. Studying in countries like Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States often costs around $35,000 a year and it’s still a luxury for most families from working-class backgrounds.

However, there are several ways to study abroad on a low budget. In the first place, there are student loans. When you are planning your budget for the UK study, it’s not just basic fees you need to think about. Students need money for utility bills, food, books, equipment and council tax. Before you even arrive to study in the UK, there are several institutions in your country to help you plan your budget. They should be able to provide you exact prices of canteen meals, bills and accommodation.

These loans help in paying living expenses and scholarships of a student. Even more, student loans are available to anyone interested in getting an abroad education. The government provides both unsubsidized and subsidized loans, while a student can get further loans in case it is necessary. It’s important to mention that one should be careful and borrow just enough to fulfill his basic necessities, because it might get difficult to pay back a large amount of money afterwards. Below are put together some costs when you are studying abroad. You can use the information as a reference to plan your budget.

Getting a Visa

Once you have settled on your location of study, you will need to decide how long you are going to remain in the UK for. A student visa entitles you to remain in the UK for up to 6 months. You will not need ESTA, as ESTA is required only if you are traveling to the United States. There is also a general student visa. The general student visa covers a student for up to 4 years and let the student take a part-time job.

Finding Accommodation

As for accommodation, Halls of Residence are by far the most popular choice for first-year students. Most Halls provide a comfy room with a bed, desk and a meal. You can expect to pay around £150 per week for the room. Utility bills are included.

Other fees

Tuition fees in the UK are usually much lower than in the United States. The highest an average UK student can expect to pay is £10,000 (around $15,000). Fees are always paid as a part of a student loan. Depending on your location, you’ll need to spend around £40 per week. Buying the supermarket products and sharing the grocery bills with your mates usually works out cheaper than buying everything for yourself. Internet bill costs around £10 per week. However, if do not use the Internet a lot, you can use internet cafes of the University internet as it’s cheaper.
