Wherever you choose to study, you’ll have to budget for accommodation and other everyday living expenses, such as food and bills.

Liverpool is one the UK's cheapest student cities. Accommodation costs are relatively low, particularly compared to the south east of England, and the city's shops and entertainment venues also have lots of student discounts.

Much of the accommodation is within walking distance of our campus, reducing travel costs. Liverpool is also a compact city, again reducing the money you’ll need to spend on transport. As a popular student city, Liverpool is home to over 60,000 students, many of the shops and entertainment venues offer student specials and discounts. Expatistan estimates the general cost of living in Liverpool is 47% cheaper than London, Numbeo 17% cheaper (without including rental prices).

We recommend you complete a simple budget plan to predict your income and outgoings. This should include accommodation, bills, insurance, TV licence, food, laundry, clothes, books, travel and socialising. How much you'll want to spend on a lot of these is completely personal.
