Cost of living
Manchester's affordable cost of living makes it an ideal choice for those who want to enjoy a major city on a budget. It is consistently shown to be one of the cheapest places in the UK for students to live.
You can enjoy some of the cheapest travel costs in the country and with a total student population of more than 80,000 to aim at, local businesses, services and nightlife venues compete for your custom with countless offers and promotions.
Below is a breakdown of spending for the average Manchester student for one academic year.
|Estimated living costs 2015/16
|Meals (excluding meals out)
|Course costs (excluding tuition fees)
(including provision of warm clothing and footwear)
|Other general living expenses
(eg photocopying and printing, laundry, phone calls, consumables, entertainment, sports, cooking equipment etc)
These estimates are based on average annual expenditure of a single student on a full-time course. For catered accommodation (breakfast and dinner on weekdays), add approximately £350 to the total.
These costs are intended as a guide only.
Some courses will require you to pay for specific items, materials or activities not covered in the tuition fees, such as field courses. In these cases the University endeavours to keep these additional costs as low as possible.
