Joking aside, a new study into the cost of living at British universities suggests that students looking to get the most for their money should seriously consider going to Edinburgh. As the deadline for UCAS applications approaches, the study, which was conducted by Ukash is intended to give students and parents an idea of the cost of living and studying in various UK cities.

The poll took into account tuition fees as well as other expenses such as rent, the price of a pint of lager and the cost of car insurance. Edinburgh was found to provide the best value for money overall with Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh taking first and second place.

The total cost of living over three years at Heriot-Watt came in at  £28,761. That figure was £31,210 for the University of Edinburgh while The London School of Economics was the most expensive place to study on the list. According to the research three years at LSE will cost you just under sixty thousand pounds.

Purchasing property for children to live in at university can be a sound investment. Should you decide on a property with more than one bedroom you might lease the extra room to another student.
