The cost of living and courses in UK universities is favorable for students. The rate of satisfaction with the cost of living for international undergraduate students is higher than the other top countries for studying abroad. That’s why the UK has emerged as the best educational destination among international students.
The courses offered at the UK University are generally shorter than the one offered in other countries for higher education. The duration of the most full-time undergraduate courses requires 3 years to complete, whereas most of the full-time postgraduate courses require only one year or more. The short duration of courses provides ease to students on their tuition fees and living expenses.
The undergraduate, as well as postgraduate students, get guaranteed accommodation support by many of the UK Universities. Such accommodation is usually in the Halls of Residence provided by the university. Some universities allow accommodation for at least the first year of the student’s course and inform students prior to the deadlines to arrange to stay for further education.
Three types of accommodation students can take advantage of:
On-Campus- College Hostel
Off-Campus- Renting a flat or apartment
Home Stay- Students can stay with families near the institution
In addition, many UK restaurants and shops offer student discount schemes and the students can also get good deals on travel passes to save some extra bucks.
