Additional course costs
You may need to budget for specific materials, trips or equipment. This will vary depending on your course and areas of specialism.
Cost of living
In addition to course costs and rent, you will of course have to budget for life itself. These costs vary but you'll need to think about how much you might spend over the whole year. Also, remember you will be here for at least the 30 weeks of term, possibly longer. This list should help get you started:
- Food Three meals a day, occasional meals out, snacks etc
- Travel In and around Falmouth, plus any trips home during, or at the end of term
- Clothing and possessions Clothes, shoes, music, books etc
- Bills Will you have any domestic bills to pay, including mobile and internet charges?
It's important to at least do a brief budget to ensure you have some idea how much money you'll have for each term and each week. There are some useful websites to help you:
