A good starting point for information is the Education UK websitehttp://www.educationuk-in.org/ which has a course search facility, answers to frequently asked questions, news stories about life in the UK, funding information, etc. Courses in the UK are often shorter, so the total cost of study can be lower. Shorter courses also mean students can realize their earning potential sooner than their counterparts elsewhere. All of which makes UK courses better value for money overall. While the course fees can range from £6,000 to £17,500, the cost of living is not the same throughout the country.
Generally, it is more expensive to live in London and the South-East of England, and cheaper in the North of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Average annual costs of living for a typical student in London can be approximately £7,300 per academic year and it would be lower outside London.
There are many benefits available to international students that can make life in the UK more affordable like the NUS Discounts, Free Healthcare, and Part-time Work. Also, universities and colleges in the UK are increasingly international with students from all over the world.
