Studying in UK can be an exorbitant undertaking, especially if you take into account the rising inflation and increasing foreign exchange rates. However, students cannot afford to compromise on quality for the sake of saving a few hundred pounds.
Therefore, we will look into universities that are-
a) affordable in terms of tuition fee and
b) also represent a good quality institute.
These findings are based on the Reddin Survey, which is conducted on an annual basis to determine the most affordable universities in the UK. The surveys is useful for many prospective local and international students. The latter will be the main focus of our discussion.
Glasgow School of Art
The UK has several arts schools which are known for their quality, such as the University of the Arts London. Another excellent school is the Glasgow School of Art, which is located in Scotland. This institute has the lowest postgraduate tuition fees for international students who wish to pursue their higher education in UK.
Their fee structure begins at a modest £5880, making their courses the most cost effective in the Kingdom. In addition, the disciplines on offer are varied as well and include Architecture, Art Writing and Interior Design.
Durham, which joined the illustrious Russell Group in 2012 (a group of 24 of the best research intensive universities in UK), is possibly the best institute on this list. It has always ranked high in the league tables for a number of years.
What is equally surprising is the fact that studying at Durham University will only send you back a minimum of £6400 yearly for a postgraduate course! That pales in comparison to some of the most exorbitant fees that are charged at other prestigious universities.
Moreover, Durham offers excellent choices for postgraduate studies, including pertinent subjects like Accounting and Finance, English and everything in between.
Another cost effective endeavour that students can look into is Middlesex University. Located in the capital city of London, Middlesex only charges international students a tuition fee starting at £6600.
International students may also opt for a year abroad, since Middlesex has an excellent campus in Dubai as well. With one of the lowest fees, students and their families need not fret about breaking the bank while pursuing a postgraduate degree.
University of Plymouth
Plymouth is a port city that is found in Devon, which is located in the southwest of England. The port is not the only aspect of the city that it is famous for. The city also harbours an eponymous university.
International postgraduate students are in luck, since the University of Plymouth offers an interesting locale for them in addition to tuition fees that begin at £7000 only. It is certainly a win-win scenario for international students.
Since it is situated on the seaside, students can even explore the beaches and countryside that is found in close proximity.
