Thousands of students from all over the world study in the UK each year, making studying in UK the number one choice for international students in Europe and number two in the world. A world-class education and good future perspective are what the British education will give you at its minimum.

London is the capital and largest city of England and the United Kingdom. The city stands on the River Thames in the south-east of England.”

Typical living and learning costs

If, as a student, you decide to live in London or any other big city, you will be paying much more than you would in other parts of the country. In 2020, London was ranked among the 10 most expensive cities to live in Europe.

Accommodation – In 2020, the average student rent came to £126 per week, or £547 a month, however, students in London can expect to pay an average of £182 a week, or £640 a month. The average annual cost for students is £4,914 (based on a 39-week contract). Most rents include bills of some kind, although one-third of students will pay bills on top of rent.

We understands how crucial accommodations are in the students’ study abroad experience. As such, we offer a variety of accommodation options so that students will have the most memorable and enjoyable stays possible (host family, homestay host, executive host family, residences, hostel / hotel, studios, shared apartments,etc.)

Food – The cost of living will also depend on how well you manage food costs. The prices of some of the most elementary items are higher in big cities. Fortunately, UK universities have dining halls within their campus where students can purchase a membership card and eat regularly. The average food cost per week in different cities in the UK can be between £30 – £40.

Transportation – Living in the UK – particularly London, England – is expensive compared to many places in the world.
The cost of transportation will of course depend on the individual situation of each individual, but you still need to be prepared financially.

Travelling a is a daily necessity for most people who live, study and work in the UK. Some choose to walk or cycle, which is cheaper than taking public transport, but can be impractical in bad weather. Taxis are widely available but more expensive. Travelcards covering longer periods of time are more cost effective. For instance, an annual Travelcard works out cheaper per week than a weekly Travelcard, but has a much higher up-front cost.


Tuition fees – Tuition fees vary depending on the studies you choose. Prices of general English courses could start from £175 per week.
Now, UK and EU students at English universities are required to pay up to £9,250 (~US$13,050) per year. International undergraduate tuition fees vary considerably, starting at around £10,000 (~US$14,130) and going up to £38,000 (~US$53,700) or more for medical degrees (source: Reddin Survey of University Tuition Fees).

    We decided to move to the UK a few years ago. None of us (we were three at that time) did not know any English at all before we moved to the UK, but after 6 months studying English we improved it much quickly than I ever expected. I absolutely recommend Hispanophile as they looked for everthing we needed (airport transfer, accomodation, English lessons and work, etc).

      My parents found Hispanophile when they were looking for some Spanish lessons for me. They had a chat with Sagrario and after a year learning with her they decided to send me to one of the summer camps.It was one of the best experiences in my life. I’ve spent two wonderful summers since then in two different awsome places in the UK and made friends for my whole life. I’m looking forward on coming back next year! The camps had the nicest and most friendliest staff.

    I contacted Hispanophile when I saw their post on a Facebook group. I had a chat with them and they advised me several courses I could do in different parts of the country. Finally I decided to take an English and Culture course in Sheffield, as I had a direct flight from where I was living. My English and Culture lessons have been awesome. I have been taking the classes for almost three months, twice a week and I am really happy about my improvement. Now, I feel more comfortable and secure when speaking English and more fluent, too.
