As thousands of students start their new University life GRB takes a look at the costs involved. The cost of an average degree is estimated to be £50,000 leaving today's graduates having up to 30 years in debt. The value of a degree is not in question - the right course, at the right Uni plus maximum effort is a passport to some fantastic careers.
What we want to do at GRB is raise awareness of proper budgeting through a student's University life to ease the pressure. According to a survey by Save The Student, students on average spend £763 a month. The figures breakdown as follows:
All in all studying and living at Uni isn't cheap so unless your parents are loaded finding a part time job is pretty essential. Just make sure you don?t burn out and take care of yourself by eating well, getting enough sleep and exercising and you'll look back on the experience positively. We can guarantee that!
