Varied sections of the United Kingdom have different culinary preferences, traditions, and population groupings. The cost of living in the United Kingdom varies according to where you live owing to property prices, food expenses, and other factors. 

There are major differences in the cost of living between England and Scotland. Furthermore, London is more expensive than other cities in the United Kingdom, indicating the variations in the average cost of living in the United Kingdom for international students.

To make a fair comparison, look at the variations in food and consumables costs between London and Leicester below:

Milk (1L)£ 0.94£0.90
Loaf of Bread£ 1.01£ 0.94

International students have a range of accommodation alternatives, both on and off campus. Staying on campus may save you money on transportation. However, because you must apply months before classes begin, your chances of obtaining on-campus housing are likely to be minimal. 

If you want to live off campus, you’ll need to find a rental property, which, depending on where you reside, might significantly reduce the cost of living in the UK for international students. Dormitories, private rental houses, and communal living are some of the greatest alternatives for off-campus living.
