Money and finance

When you arrive, there are a few things to consider regarding money:

  • you should make sure that you have enough money for initial expenses like travel and food, as well as emergencies or unexpected costs
  • credit or debit cards are widely accepted throughout the UK, but cash may be preferred for small payments – there may be a minimum spend required when paying by card and in some smaller shops card payments might not be accepted
  • accommodation at the University is self-catered, so you will need to buy food when you arrive
