Living costs and general expenses

You don’t need to provide evidence that you are able to cover the cost of your living expenses, however, you should be aware that you will be taking on a major commitment in terms of both time and money.

Before you apply, it's important that you fully understand all the costs involved (tuition fees, additional programme costs and living expenses) and are confident that you can cover these.

Your living costs will depend on where you choose to live, your lifestyle, budget and spending habits.
