We know that students often have questions about the cost of studying in London.
To help answer your questions take a look at our London on a budget information, which includes blogs and a video from LSE students.
We generally recommend that students allow £1,300-£1,400 per month for all living expenses, including accommodation, travel, food, laundry, study costs, and other personal expenses. Of course, this will vary depending on your lifestyle, personal preferences and requirements, so it's important you do your own research. There are lots of budgeting tools that can help you plan your budget. Part-time work may also be an option for some students, and there are often on-campus opportunities available including event stewarding, administration and our Student Ambassador Scheme.
We offer generous financial support to students, including bursaries, scholarships and in-course financial support.
The number of scholarships, their value and the eligibility criteria vary from year to year. All scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need in the first instance. Scholarships include:
- Uggla Family Scholars Programme: 7 scholarships for new UK undergraduate students and 3 scholarships for new overseas undergraduate students worth over £20,000 per year. Awards will be renewed for each subsequent year of study, subject to satisfactory academic progress.
- LSE Stelios Scholarships: Award value of £10,000 per year for students from the UK, Greece and Cyprus on business related degrees.
- Undergraduate Support Scheme: Awards are usually between £6,000 and £15,000, renewable for each year of study, subject to satisfactory academic progress.
You can find more specific information on fees, funding, and loans on our undergraduate financial support page.
