Living costs

You'll need enough money to pay for your fees and living costs while studying in Edinburgh.

The living costs requirement for international students is set by UK Visas and Immigration. For Edinburgh it's £1,050 per month.

Visit our international students section for more information on visas and immigration.

Living costs will vary depending on individual budgets and lifestyles. We recommend you try and create a monthly budget to keep track of your spending.

The Edinburgh Napier Students' Association has produced a handy Advice Booklet which includes a breakdown of prices to show an example of monthly budgeting and advice on employment should you wish to take on part-time work. The number of hours you are permitted to work as a Tier 4 visa student from the UK Council for International Student Affairs.
