The universities of London are very prestigious, but studying in them is not cheap. These are some of the most elite universities in Britain and the world, so they set the prices for studying accordingly. It is worth remembering that foreign students cannot count on discounts for British citizens or EU residents in London and pay the full amount (in prices it is usually designated International Students).
Undergraduate (3-4 years) starts from £5,000 per trimester, or £15,000/year. A few examples of bachelor's degrees in the capital's universities:
- LSE, London School of Economics and Political Science = from 21 570£/year
- King's College London University of London = from 15 510£/year
- University College London – UCL = from £19,720/year
- Imperial College London = from £33,000/year
- Royal Holloway University of London = from £18,300/year.
In total, for the entire undergraduate course, the student will need to pay £46,530-£99,000.
Master's degree can be a little more affordable, plus it usually lasts no more than 1-2 years. A couple of examples of the cost of master's programs in London:
- University of Law London = from 16 230£/year
- Royal Veterinary College,University of London = from £21,000/year
- London South Bank University = from 13 780£/year.
But if a London university offers doctoral studies, then its cost is high even for the British themselves:
As, however, and the prices for the MBA program:
- London Business School (LBS) = 87 900/15 months
- HULT International Business School London = from 54 600/year.
If you enter the preparatory programs, you can focus on the following prices:
- International Foundation = from 18 000/year
- Academic English courses = from 2500/trimester
- Pre-Masters = from 11 200/2 trimesters
- International Year One = from 19 000/year
- University Pathway = from 19,000/year.
Remember that in addition to studying, you are waiting for other additional expenses - life in London is not cheap at all, so it is worth laying in the budget enough funds for:
- Rental housing (few universities in London offer residences), payment of utility bills
- Food, clothes, household trifles
- Stationery, textbooks and books
- Connections (local sim-card, Internet).
