Estimated living costs per month

Northern Ireland is recognised by the British Council as having the lowest cost of living in the UK. We estimate, as a guide, that you should allow between £5500 and £7000 to cover your personal expenses for a full year. If you stay for one semester the costs will of course be approximately half of this.
