Student Funding


Cost of living

As well as the cost of tuition fees, a single student will need around £10,000 - £11,500 to cover living expenses for a full calendar year although you might be able to make savings in some areas, for example, if you go home to parents in the holidays, costs will be less. To help you budget, we've made a rough monthly guide to living expenses in Glasgow.
