Cost of studying in Liverpool
Although not the most affordable city in the world, Liverpool isn’t exactly the most expensive city either, ranking 80th for affordability this year.
A year’s tuition will set international students back an average of US$20,700 per year. Although this sounds expensive, it’s cheaper than fellow UK city Bristol, which has average annual tuition fees of US$30,500.
Living costs are also high. Numbeo estimates that a single person living in the city will need around US$885 per month, with an extra US$895 for rent. It’s worth noting, however, that rent in the UK capital, London, is around 64 percent higher than in Liverpool.
