What do I need to bring with me to the UK?
Once you have confirmed your place at Leeds Beckett University you need to make sure you have secured sufficient funding for the duration of the course. When you apply for entry clearance or a visa, you will be required to prove that you have enough money to cover all of your expenses, and those of any dependants. It is important that you plan your funding very carefully before you get here, and that you manage your finances well whilst you are here.
Some of the costs that you will need to budget for are:
- Tuition fees
- Accommodation (for you plus any dependents)
- Entry clearance application fees
- Travel to & from the UK, plus during your time in the UK
- Food and other daily living expenses (for you plus any dependents)
- Books and equipment for studying
- Household bills (including TV license)
- Social events and entertainment
- Child care
- One-off expenses such as birthday presents.
It is very difficult to suggest to you exactly how much money you will need to support yourself, as each person's circumstances will be different. If you are bringing your husband or wife and children with you, you will need to make further financial provision for them.

for great advice and tools to help you plan and manage your budget whilst studying in the UK.
