Planning Your Expenses as A Student in the UK
We do not advise carrying large sums of cash with you on arrival. We recommend that you bring enough cash with you to cover your first two weeks in the UK – no more than £250 for your immediate needs. It is safer to bring large sums of money in travellers’ cheques which can be cashed in banks, post offices and airports, but be aware that there is often a minimum commission charge.
Credit and debit cards are widely accepted in the UK, MasterCard (Access) and Visa being the most common. Diners Club and American Express are less commonly accepted. You can withdraw money from a cash machine (also known as an ‘ATM’ or cash point) if you have a Personal Identification Number (PIN) for that card.
You may want to inform your current bank that you are moving to the UK and ask if you can use your card here.
Do you need a visa?
To study abroad in the UK a visa is generally needed if you (or your family) are nationals of a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland. This visa is called “entry clearance” because it gives you permission to enter the UK.
