When you arrive you will feel as if you have a lot of money with you. Please budget sensibly. You will need to think about paying for fees and accommodation. Students who live on-campus do not have to worry about transportation to classes, because everything is within walking distance. It is difficult to estimate accurately the cost of living since so much depends on your lifestyle. On the whole, university accommodation is cheapest. You will also find that SOAS and other colleges of the University offer subsidised cafes and bars where eating and drinking is more affordable.
