Living Costs

Costs of living vary throughout Britain. Students living in Birmingham enjoy lower costs than many other cities in the UK, but the actual amount you will spend will depend upon your lifestyle. We can only give you an approximate indication of how much you will need. You can find out about how much the University of Birmingham estimates that the cost of living for a single student is by visiting the Money advice and support pages of the student support area, which includes a table of living costs.

The accommodation section of the University of Birmingham website includes information on accommodation services for postgraduates which is useful for planning your living costs during your time studying your MBA. At the University we understand the importance of securing suitable accommodation when you are getting used to an unfamiliar environment and meeting new people, which is why we guarantee a place in University accommodation to all EU / international students who are new to Birmingham (provided that you meet the criteria detailed in our International Guarantee Scheme).


You may be able to gain financial support for your MBA study and there are a number of scholarships available for both UK and International students. Find out more about scholarships and funding .
