What will it cost?
This will depend on where in the UK you choose to study. In England, Wales and N Ireland you will pay tuition fees of £3000 per year. In Scotland, however, tuition is free of charge for EU students.
So….. a three year course in England will cost you £9000 and a four year course in Scotland £2000. Quite a difference!
NB! Don’t make the mistake of thinking that Scottish universities are inferior just because tuition is free – Scotland has a very good reputation when it comes to quality.
from tuition fees you will need to pay living costs. These include accommodation, food, books, clothes,etc. Living costs can vary depending on where you choose to study.
London is expensive!
Accommodation, transport and eating out all costs more here. You have to decide whether you want to pay the price for living in one of the world’s most exciting cities. Undeniably, it’s a great place but it doesn’t suit everybody.
Self-catering or all-in?
Living costs vary from place to place and depending on what sort of accommodation you choose.
A self-catering option where you cook your own food will be cheaper than the ‘all- in’ option where all meals are included. Sharing a room with another student is also a way of cutting costs.
The university provides accommodation for your first year. After that you will be expected to move out and make room for ‘freshers’. You will probably rent a flat with some friends for your second and subsequent years. This is usually an eye-opener for Swedish students!!
Taking a loan
You can take a loan from CSN and start paying it back when you get a full time job. Most graduates agree that the money they spent on their education was money well spent
