Accommodation and Living Costs

The College does not provide on-site accommodation, and you will need to make your own arrangements to find a place to live whilst studying with us.

Types of accommodation in the area:

  • Homestay £125 – £135 per week. Average cost £4500 for 36 weeks – this is where you have a room in a family home.
  • Self-Catering £75 – £95 per week. Average cost £3060 for 36 weeks – here you have your own room sharing with a family or in some cases with a resident landlord/landlady, but you will cook for yourself. Telephone calls are charged extra.
  • Private accommodation £80 – £100 per week. Average cost £3240 for 36 weeks – this accommodation can consist of sharing either a house or flat with other students. All utility bills, gas, electric and telephone are excluded and have to be paid separately via bills or cards which are used in gas or electric meters. The costs are shared by other students in the house.

Please note that all the prices shown above are indicative.
