Rent – What African Students going to the UK should know

The UK is becoming a more favoured destination for African students given the post study work visa that offers a pathway to residency and possible citizenship long term.

While post graduate tuition fees in the UK could be as high as £40,000 per annum, there are schools with fees as low as £10,000 per annum.

Also, International students could make tuition payments in up to 3 installments. This lowers the entry costs making it more affordable in principle.

The next hurdle financially would be the living costs and while students can work up to 20 hours a week, the wage proceeds can only go as far as the cost of living.
Often, the bulk of living costs are spent on Rent.
