Topic - Understanding University costs - Help a confused parent please

chubbs2 - on 23 Oct 2013
Right I've got 2 kids who are likely to be off to University in the next 2-3 years. I've got the 9k per annum Tuition fee thing, (which may well have gone up by the time they go) and I understand that this is covered by a student loan repayable when they are working and earning a certain salary etc.

I'd like to feel I could make a contribution to their living costs, but I'm confused by the stuff on-line about hall costs and some Universities giving bursaries to help with costs and some funding available for low income households etc etc.

Can anybody give me a rough idea on additional costs outside tuition fees, to study for example Engineering at a half decent (but not top) University.Things like Hall fees and / or a room in a shared house and cost for books etc. Don't worry about beer and food....I'm sure they'll be too busy working to need any.
