The UK is considered a special country, with lots of opportunities and opened doors, where immigrants can integrate quite fast. The cost of living in the UK will pretty much depend on the chosen city because, as we all know, the big and important cities have high standards of living which align with the major metropolises worldwide.

Accommodation costs

Numerous immigrants start searching for houses near the important cities in the country, due to low prices for condominiums, apartments or studios. For instance, the monthly rent can start from £300 and end at £4000 for a deluxe apartment in London. Manchester, Birmingham or Liverpool are among the most expensive cities in the UK, where the rent can start from £350 to £800 for an apartment with two rooms.

Transportation costs

Once you have found details about the job, the accommodation or about the school for your child, it is time to search for a proper means of transportation. As a recommendation, you can always choose the bus or the subway instead of a personal car, for financial reasons at the beginning. If you want a yearly subscription for the London bus fare, you should prepare around £700 or £18 for a monthly subscription. If you wish to take the subway, you should prepare around £3 for a trip.

Education costs for your child

Immigrants who come to the UK and wish to offer a suitable education for their children have the possibility to register them with the primary school which is tax-free. For a boarding school in the UK, the parents can pay around £25,000 per year. Please click here for further information about the UK Education System.

Council Tax

If you live in UK, you have to pay council tax. They calculate how much you should pay per year based on where you live and how many people live with you (if you live alone, it’s much less). This tax helps pay for trash collection, police forces, and street maintenance. It usually averages about £25 ($40 USD) per week.

Healthcare costs 

Residents in the UK have access to free medical care under the National Health Service (NHS). Please click here for further information.
