What and where to study
You need to have an idea of what you're going to study and where you'll be studying before you can properly estimate how much studying is going to cost you.
You can then work out how much you'll need for:
- compulsory course fees
- course-related costs (eg, books, laptop, etc)
- living costs.
If you don't know what you want to study, think about:
- what you're passionate about
- what your skills are
- job opportunities available in that field
- how much you could earn in the future.
