This website has been developed by Brightside, an independent education charity. We aim to help students prepare for the financial side of UK higher education. This site provides international students with an interactive guide to living costs, as well as useful info and student profiles. By using this tool and building your own budget, we hope that you will feel well prepared for UK study and confident about managing your money. Thanks to UKCISA and the students who helped us develop it. We hope that you enjoy using it!
