Where to live

Living in Loughborough

A single international postgraduate student studying in Loughborough requires approximately £11,500 a year for accommodation and other living expenses, excluding tuition fees. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) will require you to demonstrate that you have at least £1,015 per month available for your maintenance costs, up to a minimum annual total of £9,135, when you apply for your student visa.

Living in London

As England's capital city, London is an exciting place to live, with activities and events around every corner. We estimate the average cost of living for a student on our London campus to be around £15,000 for the academic year 2017/18, including accommodation, food, travel, leisure and personal expenditure. The UKVI expects London-based students to have at least £1,265 per month available to cover their living costs, up to a minimum annual total of £11,385, to be verified at the time of your visa application.

London accommodation

Students with families

If you're looking to bring your family with you to the UK while you study, we can provide you with additional support at both our Loughborough campus and our London campus.
