Students with families
Information for students with families
We advise students to think carefully before deciding to bring their partner and children to the UK. Students who plan ahead and make preparations for their family to join them at a later stage in the academic year will often find it easier to adapt to life in the UK and are likely to experience fewer difficulties.
The basic living costs for 12 months for a couple with one child would be approximately £17,000. If you have more than one child accompanying you, you should add a further £1,800 per child.
The following pages include information on a range of topics specific to students with families:
