Living Costs  

In addition to your tuition fees, you should allow enough funds to cover living expenses for the duration of your studies. The cost of living in Newcastle is among the lowest in the UK. The amount you will need depends on your lifestyle, but we estimate that the minimum amount required by a single student to cover basic living expenses (e.g. accommodation, heating, food) is around £800 per month.  If you are studying a programme in London the estimated minimum amount is £1000 per month.
