Hull named as the Most Affordable City in the UK for students

25 October 2018

The 2018 Natwest Student Living Index has named Hull as the most cost-effective city in the UK for students.

Natwest surveyed 3419 students across 35 of the most popular UK university cities and rated each location on essentials such as groceries, rent and living expenses. Students in Hull have the lowest Student Living Index, meaning money goes a whole lot further in the city, with lower rents on average than anywhere else in England - and the cheapest nights out.

At Hull, an average student spends £388.75 per month on rent, the lowest in England and 4th in the UK, while enjoying a higher student income (£1316.60 per month), the cheapest night out (£17.70 on average), cheapest takeaway (£7.70) and third cheapest pint (£2.40).

Hull was named the UK city of culture in 2017 and its University, as England’s 14th-oldest university, has a proud heritage of academic excellence. If you are interested in applying to study at Hull, arrange a free consultation in Abuja or Lagos today.

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
