Is London an affordable city for international students to live and pursue their education ?

posted on: March 13, 2023

London is one of the most famous cities in the world. It is known for its extravagant fashion and lifestyle. It also has some of the most historical places in the world that attracts thousands of tourists every year. London can be undoubtably said as the most popular city of the UK. But despite being such a popular destination, many people do not agree with London being the best city for international students. There are many reasons to support the stance. One of the major reasons is that London is an extremely expensive city. Currently, it is ranked as the fourth most expensive city in the world in terms of living expenses.

 Also most of the universities in London charge very high tuition fees from international students. Even if you secure a scholarship, the cost of education will still be very high. And also you must keep in mind that not every student is able to secure a scholarship. Recently, there has been a 20% hike in rent prices in London due to shortage of places to live. The UK is going through inflation due to which grocery prices have also increased. If you're planning to move to London, you must take these factors into consideration. We are not saying that living on a budget in London is impossible but it is surely very tough.
